Are the Millwall conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Co-operative?

Millwall conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Co-operative directly.

I purchased a terraced Edwardian property in Millwall. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Millwall and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.

I'm refinancing my existing property to a buy to let loan with Nationwide Building Society and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a down payment on a second property. The area we are interested in is Millwall. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two lenders and tie in the two deals?

Make use of our search tool on this page to ensure that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. Assuming that they are your conveyancer should be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you lawyer and specify your desired outcome and requirements.

Having local Millwall know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and they were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Millwall conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Millwall with the aim of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Millwall can be avoided if you get in touch lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and ask them to put together the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ lawyers.
  • Many landlords or Management Companies in Millwall levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges. The management information can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most frequent reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Millwall. If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Organising a new share certificate can be a lengthy process and slows down many a Millwall home move. If a new share certificate is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity. Some Millwall leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers.
