Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Paddington

I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. I hope to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Paddington. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?

The Lloyds approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

We were just about to sign contracts for a freehold house in Paddington. We encountered a snag. The mortgage offer with Lloyds TSB Bank runs out on 12/3/2020 but the sellers are insisting on a completion date of 16/3/2020. Can one prolong the mortgage expiry date?

The person best placed to address this question is your conveyancer who will hopefully assess whether they corresponding with the mortgage company, vendor’s solicitors, estate agents or conceivably all parties given the history of your conveyancing as of today.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Paddington?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Paddington. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Paddington. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Paddington

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please supply a car parking plan.

How straightforward is it to use the search tool to get a fee calculation from a conveyancing solicitor in Paddington on the panel for my mortgage?

Step one is to select a lender such as Accord Mortgages Ltd, Virgin Money or Barclays Direct then choose your preferred area such as Paddington. Conveyancing firms in Paddington and nationally will then be shown.

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Paddington

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Paddington conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures set by HQ.
