Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Marylebone

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Kent Reliance Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Marylebone?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Can you help - my lawyer advises that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Marylebone conveyancing?

The appropriate level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

Does a directory service exist listing HSBC panel solicitors in Marylebone on the Building Society Association’s Website?

No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings viewable online. Where you are in need of a Marylebone conveyancer on the HSBC please use our facility.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Marylebone conveyancing lawyers have been selected. How long does it take for Co-operative to forward the offer to the property lawyer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Co-operative conducted the survey? Have you advised Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I require fast conveyancing in Marylebone as I am faced with pressure to complete inside 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save money and time?

If.Given you are are a cash purchaser you are at liberty not to have searches conducted although no law firm would recommend that you don't. With lots of history conveyancing in Marylebone the following are examples of what can crop up and adversely impact future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Fees, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...

I am buying a new build house in Marylebone benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it could adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent told us that the owners will only proceed if we use the agent's recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Marylebone

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Marylebone conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by HQ.

My wife and I have just found out that one of the partners of the solicitors undertaking the purchase conveyancing in Marylebone is an aunty of the seller. Is this permitted?

As long as there is no conflict of interest this is permitted. Where you are requiring mortgage finance then the lender may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific requirements on this. For example for Halifax as of 14/9/2022, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Not if the person dealing is the borrower or a member of the borrower's immediate family. Your firm may act if a separate fee earner of no less standing or a partner in the firm acts for us.
