Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mile End

My property lawyer in Mile End is not on the Halifax Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the Halifax list of approved lawyers?

Your options are as follows:

  1. Complete the purchase with your existing Mile End lawyers but Halifax will need to instruct a solicitor on their panel. This will inevitably rack up the overall conveyancing fees as well as result in frustration.
  2. Get an alternative solicitor to to deal with the conveyancing, remembering to check they are Halifax approved.

I am planning on selling our home in Mile End and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Mile End. Having lived in Mile End for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

I have todayfound out that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Mile End for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Mile End conveyancing specialists.

Should I be wary about brokers that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Mile End conveyancing firm?

As is the case with lots of service providers, often recommendations from family and friends can be very helpful. But there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may recommend conveyancers to select. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. Don't forget that most banks have an approved list of lawyers you must use for the lender aspect of your house move.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Mile End. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as you normally would because all ground rent and service payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Notwithstanding our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in Mile End. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Mile End conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Mile End flat is 26 Rhondda Grove in June 2009. The net price payable by the leaseholders as determined by the Tribunal was £3,015.13. This comprised £11,300 premium for the reversion less £8,284.87 costs as ordered by the County Court.

I have appointed a Mile End conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (first time buyers) and have spotted in the terms and conditions that they are not overseen by the Financial Conduct Authority. Am I right to be worried or is that the norm with lawyer?

We can't see why they should be. Most solicitor don't lend money. You should check that they are governed by the SRA, who dictate stringent rules in relation to amounts held on client account.
