Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Kensington

In the event thatI was to acquire a freehold homein North Kensington mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in North Kensington?

The sole saving you would make on is the North Kensington conveyancing searches.

We had selected conveyancing lawyers locally in North Kensington on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional charge for handling the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Clydesdale but by your North Kensington property lawyer. Some firms on the Clydesdale panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

Can I be sure that the North Kensington conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in North Kensington getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. North Kensington conveyancing solicitors are selected. How long does it take for Yorkshire BS to issue the offer to the conveyancer?

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

As you are are a cash buyer you have the choice not to have searches conducted although no lawyer would suggest that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in North Kensington the following are instances of issues that can arise and adversely impact the marketability of the property: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Fees, Outstanding Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in North Kensington completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

What does commercial conveyancing in North Kensington cover?

North Kensington conveyancing for business premises incorporates a broad range of guidance, given by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the transfer of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent advised that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's recommended conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in North Kensington

We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to use your preferred North Kensington conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothe ones that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
