Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Paddock Wood

I can't travel far from Paddock Wood. Please explain the reason why all Paddock Wood solicitors aren't included on all mortgage company panels?

As inequitable as it may seem for banks to restrict who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s perspective, the flip side is that banks are becoming ever more anxious and consider it necessary to defend themselves against illegal activities. As a consequence of this concern lenders are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

We are selling our property in Paddock Wood and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Paddock Wood. We have lived in Paddock Wood for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Paddock Wood for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out 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 Paddock Wood conveyancing specialists.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Paddock Wood I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Paddock Wood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

How straightforward is it to use the search tool to select a conveyancing practitioner in Paddock Wood on the approved list for my lender?

Step one is to select a mortgage company such as Accord Mortgages Ltd, Coventry Building Society or Platform Home Loans Ltd then specify your preferred area for instance Paddock Wood. Conveyancing firms in Paddock Wood and beyond will then be identified.

I am 18 days into a freehold purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the selling agent to carry out the conveyancing in Paddock Wood. I am am extremely disappointed with the quality of service. Can you you assist me in finding new lawyers?

A lawyer would have to be very poor in order to consider replacing them. Has the loan offer been issued? If so you will need to advise them of the new contact details and get the offer are re-issued. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental costs and delays. That should be your first question of the new lawyers. The find a solicitor tool can help you find a lender approved conveyancer for your conveyancing in Paddock Wood
