I went with a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Newham last week. Looking through the terms of engagement it is apparent thatI am on the hook for charges even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select a web based conveyancing brokerage offering no move no charge conveyancing in Newham?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to counteract those cases that abort. Dont forget that these offerings rarely cover disbursements for example Newham conveyancing search costs.
When will exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Newham and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Newham you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Newham)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
We are purchasing a flat in Newham. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we have to send money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Is it the case that all Newham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Skipton conveyancing list of approved practices?
Some major lenders now make use of the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to remain on their panels.
We are getting the release of further monies on our home loan from Santander as we intend to conduct renovations to our house in Newham. Do we need to select a local Newham solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Santander don't usually appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander conveyancing panel.

I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Newham. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as you normally would because all rents and service invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
After years of dialogue we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Newham. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
in cases where there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the amount due.
