Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Acton

I was referred a lawyer who has quoted £1400 for freehold conveyancing in North Acton. I am hoping to sell a Victorian property for £200,000. Are these estimated fees excessive? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in North Acton?

The quote is slightly on the expensive side. If you are prepared to invest time scrutinising prices you may be able to trim some of the expense by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, you couldlive to regret opting for an an untested conveyancer. If is important to enquire the solicitor can act for your bank.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Coventry BS. North Acton conveyancing solicitors are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Coventry BS?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Coventry BS completed the survey? Have you informed Coventry BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

The mortgage over my property is with Coventry BS for my property in North Acton. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?

You must advise Coventry BS in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel solicitor.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, TSB are being pedantic. The North Acton solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB 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 am intent on selling our house in North Acton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in North Acton. Having lived in North Acton for 4 years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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 illness)

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in North Acton. I have land on a web site which seems to have the perfect offering If it is possible to get all the legals completed via email that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

Can you offer any advice when it comes to finding a North Acton conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a North Acton conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you speak with two or three firms including non North Acton conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be of use:

    How familiar is the firm with lease extension legislation?

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a North Acton conveyancing firm to represent me?

Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a North Acton conveyancing firm who can help.
