Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Finchley

We hired a local firm for our conveyancing in North Finchley recently. After carefully reading the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatI am liable for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I go with them or appoint an on-line conveyancing company advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in North Finchley?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to neutralise the cases that do not proceed. Dont forget that these arrangements generally do not cover expenses such as North Finchley conveyancing search costs.

We previously instructed conveyancing lawyers based in North Finchley on the UBS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me an additional sum for dealing with the UBS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by UBS?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by UBS but by your North Finchley conveyancer. Some firms on the UBS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your conveyancing.

About to purchase flat in North Finchley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the North Finchley solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in North Finchley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in North Finchley approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in North Finchley typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in North Finchley or who has acted in the same development.

I need to review quotes for conveyancing in North Finchley from three solicitor and choose one. Do I ask them to sit tight until I a suitable apartment to buy.

We would recommend that you wait to ask your property lawyer to commence work and apply for searches after the sales memo has been issued by the selling agent especially as North Finchley conveyancing searches are costly.
