I am hoping to receive a mortgage offer from Nat West. I intend to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Merton Park. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

My solicitor has discovered a defect with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Merton Park. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer says that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?

What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Merton Park

Do not opt for the lowest Merton Park conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

We expect to receive a AIP from RBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Merton Park solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Merton Park solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

How does conveyancing in Merton Park differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Merton Park approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Merton Park usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Merton Park or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Merton Park is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Merton Park are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Merton Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Merton Park 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.
