Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leyton

I can't travel far from Leyton. What is the rationale as to why all Leyton conveyancers aren't included on all bank panels?

Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in banks and building societies removing a number of firms from their official list of approved conveyancing practitioners .

Our Leyton conveyancer has identified a discrepancy between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer has advised that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action legitimate?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of stalling in Leyton house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Leyton.

My wife and I have a renovated Victorian property in Leyton. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Leyton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

What does commercial conveyancing in Leyton cover?

Leyton conveyancing for business premises covers a wide range of advice, supplied by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

Is it best to appoint a Leyton conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? An old friend can conduct the conveyancing however they are based approximately 350miles away.

The primary upside of using a local Leyton conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them where appropriate. Having local Leyton know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were content that must surpass using an unknown Leyton conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
