Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mortlake

We are planning to acquire a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Mortlake who is on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Mortlake.

We are due to move property in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Mortlake. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across your website.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from the estate agent but this can only take place after the sellers conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Mortlake or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Mortlake.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, RBS are being pedantic. The Mortlake solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Mortlake is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Will our lawyer be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Mortlake.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Mortlake. Plenty of people will purchase a house in Mortlake, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Mortlake. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the vendor to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer may bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. The purchaser’s solicitors may also conduct an enviro search. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be conducted.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Mortlake I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Mortlake suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
