Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Norbury

I do hope you can assist me. My Norbury conveyancer is advising me that he is legally obliged toconduct Norbury conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westapproved lawyer panel. These Norbury searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a home loan with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Norbury conveyancing searches.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as HSBC, do Norbury lawyers face a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any bank fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

Does a directory service exist listing RBS panel conveyancers in Norbury on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public over the internet. Where you are looking for a Norbury conveyancing practitioner on the RBS please use our tool.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Bank of Ireland. Norbury conveyancing lawyers are chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Bank of Ireland?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Bank of Ireland conducted the survey? Have you informed Bank of Ireland as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am downsizing from our house in Norbury and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Norbury. We have lived in Norbury for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of 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 sickness)

My wife and I own a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Norbury. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Leeds Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read 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 Norbury and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

I own a leasehold flat in Norbury. Conveyancing and Barnsley Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Norbury who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Norbury conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a Norbury conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the LVT to judgment on the price.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Norbury property is Flat 12, Newlands Court Streatham Common North in May 2012. the decision of the Tribunal was that the premium payable by the Applicants to the Respondent for the new lease of the Premises be £70,140. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 23.25 years.

Do online conveyancing companies undertake everything a local Norbury solicitor does or do I still need to retain a solicitor for the final stages for my conveyancing in Norbury?

Where you choose an online conveyancer they will undertake all the work your Norbury solicitor would cover.
