My home in New Southgate is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will the property lawyer have to be required to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.

We are buying a 3 bedroom semi in New Southgate. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these works are allowed?

Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in New Southgate can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain changes or need the consent of another owner. Many extensions need local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

We had chosen conveyancing lawyers with offices in New Southgate on the Nationwide solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional charge for handling the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Nationwide but by your New Southgate solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Nationwide panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in New Southgate accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in New Southgate. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Nationwide?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, New Southgate conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the Nationwide approved list. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to press on with searches.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in New Southgate took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Are New Southgate conveyancing solicitors under an obligation to the Law Society to publish transparent conveyancing figures?

Inbuilt into the Solicitors Code of Conduct are specific rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their fees to clients.The Law Society have practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not intended as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, however, represent the Law Society’s perspective of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in New Southgate or further afield.
