My lawyer has identified a a problem with the lease for the flat we are buying in North Harrow. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our solicitor says that he must ensure that the bank is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the lender are the client. Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the bank can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your conveyancer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
My colleague recommended that where I am purchasing in North Harrow I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard North Harrow conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about North Harrow around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the North Harrow Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, North Harrow Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about North Harrow.
I have been advised by numerous selling agents in North Harrow to find a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your services over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
We are 14 days into a freehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the estate agent to carry out the conveyancing in North Harrow. I am am very disappointed with the level of service. Can you help me find new solicitors?
They would need to be really poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has the loan offer been sent? If so you must inform them of the new contact details and have the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid added costs and frustration.
