Me and my partner are soon to exchange on the purchase of a property in Northolt but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement however TSB will not agree to this. Should they have been involved?
Your lawyer being on the TSB conveyancing panel is duty bound to disclose to TSB of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your lawyer to notify the price change to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Northolt.
I am planning to move home in January. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Northolt. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent but this can only be done once the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Northolt or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Northolt.
We had instructed conveyancing lawyers locally in Northolt on the UBS solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a separate charge for dealing with the UBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by UBS?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by UBS but by your Northolt property lawyer. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
We expect to receive a DIP from Coventry BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Northolt solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Northolt solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.
2 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Northolt completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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 premises 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.

Can you set examples of compelling benefits to selecting a high street property lawyer in Northolt
