Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Old Ford

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Old Ford. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the The Royal Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

The first thing to do is e-mail the solicitor and ask them whether they can act for the lender. Otherwise you should call The Royal Bank of Scotland who may be able to confirm.

My wife and I own a semi-detached Georgian property in Old Ford. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Coventry Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Old Ford and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

I was pointed in your direction by a few estate agents in Old Ford to locate a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your site ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t make any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

What makes a Old Ford lease problematic?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Old Ford. Most leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain provisions are missing. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the building Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage

A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Santander, Bank of Scotland, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to pull out.

I'm selling a house in Old Ford. I have found my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't see my lawyer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?

Not every individual in the company must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
