My financial adviser says he needs my North Sheen lawyer’ panel member for the Santander conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have tried my local North Sheen office but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your North Sheen conveyancer . Most North Sheen conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
We had chosen solicitors locally in North Sheen on the Co-operative solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental fee for handling the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Co-operative?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner can charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Co-operative but by your North Sheen property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Co-operative panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in North Sheen on 8/5/2020, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Are Santander entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My sealed bid on a detached house in North Sheen has been agreed to, the vendors do however have a connected purchase. The sellers have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in North Sheen. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS started?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, North Sheen conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in North Sheen took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 residence 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.

I own a leasehold house in North Sheen. Conveyancing and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in North Sheen who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a North Sheen conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Notwithstanding our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in North Sheen. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a North Sheen conveyancing firm who can help.

The property lawyers undertaking our conveyancing in North Sheen has forwarded documents to review that state the land is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not registred at HM Land Regsitry?
Although the vast majorities of properties in North Sheen are now registered with the Land Registry there are still a few that are unregistered. Any property in North Sheen that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HM Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a North Sheen property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of North Sheen conveyancing lawyers will be able to handle such matters but in the event that uncertainty prevails the standard advice these days appears to be for the seller’s conveyancer to undertake the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the transfer to the buyer - this no doubt result in a prolonged transaction.
