Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oval

My husband and I are looking to buy a flat in Oval and are in fact using a Oval conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our property lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Britannia have this afternoon contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Oval solicitor is not on their conveyancing panel. Is this a problem?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchasers' solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Oval lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.

I can't really find anything else in Oval in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I am using a search engine for the term cheap conveyancing in Oval it shows results of many solicitorsin the vicinity. With so much choice what is the best way to find the suitable conveyancing solicitor for purchase transaction?
