There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Parsons Green but how do I know who I should use?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Parsons Green conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.
I just bought a flat at auction in Parsons Green. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?
Given that you have now exchanged you should retain a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you are faced with a tight deadline in which to complete the deal. An auction property should have a corresponding auction pack. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the conveyancing papers should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You must give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Parsons Green. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
I'm buying my first flat in Parsons Green with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it would impact my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Parsons Green is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

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 three or four local estate agents in Parsons Green to choose a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services rather than another?
We don’t give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Parsons Green
We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to appoint your own,trusted Parsons Green conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
