Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oakhill

What is the first thing I need to know about purchase conveyancing in Oakhill?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Oakhill and elsewhere in North East London is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes a lender. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Oakhill an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose role it is to look after your best interests and to protect you.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest will try and persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your conveyancer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

The Oakhill conveyancing firm that I recently instructed on my purchase in Oakhill have without warning closed. I only went with them because I needed a firm on the Principality conveyancing panel and my preferred Oakhill lawyer was not. I paid them money in advance. What are my options?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Principality conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Oakhill is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Oakhill are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Oakhill you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Oakhill may determine 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 premises.

I have been pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in Oakhill to choose a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?

We refuse to give any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I need to instruct a conveyancing lawyer in Oakhill for my house move. Is it possible to review a solicitor's complaints history with the legal regulator?

One can find published Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations arising from inquisitions from 2008 onwards. Visit Check a solicitor's record. For records about the period before 1 January 2008, or to check a solicitors history, ring 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 any week day save for Tuesday when lines open at 9.30am. For non-uk callers, dial +44 (0)121 329 6800. The SRA may recorded call for training purposes.

I need to switch lawyers as my Oakhill lawyer is not on the mortgage company's approved list of conveyancing solicitors. Is it advisable to appoint a new law firm?

If you haven't yet instructed a solicitor to commence the conveyancing and at this stage simply received quotes, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Oakhill that you're thinking of instructing.
