Do the conveyancing practitioners listed on your site handle right to buy conveyancing in Notting Hill?

We do have numerous conveyancing specialists carrying out right to buy conveyancing matters Do contact the solicitors listed to get a costs calculation.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Notting Hill conveyancing solicitors have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Kent Reliance?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Kent Reliance completed the valuation? Have you informed Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, HSBC are being pedantic. The Notting Hill solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but HSBC are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Notting Hill lawyer having checked that they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Notting Hill postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Notting Hill.

I have justbecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Notting Hill for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Notting Hill conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Notting Hill differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Notting Hill approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Notting Hill tend to 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 used to new build conveyancing in Notting Hill or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Notting Hill is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Notting Hill are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Notting Hill you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Notting Hill may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

We are a fortnight into a freehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Notting Hill. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?

They would need to be really bad to suggest changing them. Has the loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you must advise them of the new solicitor and ensure the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your solicitor ideally should be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid supplemental costs and delays. That should be your first question of the new solicitors. Our search tool will assist you in finding a bank approved conveyancer for your home move in Notting Hill
