I am obtaining a mortgage with Nat West. I hope to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Leytonstone. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years built) in Leytonstone. The vast majority the flats have already been occupied. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Leytonstone?
A big part of the Leytonstone conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. There are hundreds search providers who offer Leytonstone conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are known collectively as personal search companies and they produce, not surprisingly, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their data from the local authority.
The Leytonstone conveyancing firm that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Leytonstone have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I needed a lawyer on the Nottingham conveyancing panel and my family Leytonstone lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.
Just acquired a terraced house in Leytonstone , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Leytonstone conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my ownership is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Leytonstone registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third parties. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
