Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Little Ilford

What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Little Ilford?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Little Ilford and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, property agent and on occasion the lender. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Little Ilford is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the legal process whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.

There is a definite creep in the "blame" culture- someone has to be blamed for the process taking so long. We recommend that you should always trust your lawyer ahead of the other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from Coventry BS as we wish to conduct improvements to our home in Little Ilford. Are we obliged to appoint a nearby Little Ilford solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

Coventry BS don't usually instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Coventry BS list.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. Little Ilford conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. How long does it take for Leeds Building Society to send the offer to the conveyancer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Leeds Building Society conducted the survey? Have you informed Leeds Building Society as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I currently have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Little Ilford. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?

Your original mortgage agreement with Aldermore will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Aldermore will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.

I need some quick conveyancing in Little Ilford as I am faced with an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line within one month. Luckily I do not require a mortgage. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

With lots of history conveyancing in Little Ilford the following are examples of what can be revealed and therefore impact market value: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Charges, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Little Ilford is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Little Ilford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Little Ilford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Little Ilford may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Do I need to be concerned by brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting an online conveyancing firm rather than a local Little Ilford conveyancing firm?

As is the case with many professional services, often input from connections can be very helpful. But there are lots of people with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all suggest solicitors to use. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are free to choose your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers operate an approved list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.

My uncle has encouraged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Little Ilford. Should I find my own property lawyer?

No doubt the ideal way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to get referrals from friends or relatives who have actually used the conveyancer that you are considering.
