Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leyton

I opted for a Leyton based solicitor for our conveyancing in Leyton recently. After carefully reading the fine print I seewe are on the hook for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select a web based firm advertising no completion no cost conveyancing in Leyton?

I am considering applying for a Yorkshire BS mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Leyton with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire BS ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, but Yorkshire BS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

Should our lawyer be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Leyton.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Leyton. Some people will buy a house in Leyton, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that can be undertaken by the buyer or by their lawyers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Leyton. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an inaccurate answer. A purchaser’s solicitors should also order an environmental search. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be initiated.

I think he will just be need to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the property lawyer but he is concerned it could hold up the sale of the flat.
