Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pentonville

Me and my partner are planning to acquire a 2 bedroom apartment in Pentonville with a mortgage. We like our Pentonville solicitor, however the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or keep our Pentonville solicitor and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We feel that this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Pentonville conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

The normal practice is not to serve notice for your tenancy until your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and request that they chase the owners solicitors, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will aim to achieve

Finally the sale completed on my house in Pentonville last June yet the purchaser is telephoning every few hours to say their lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?

Post completion of your sale your conveyancer is obliged to deliver the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the home loan has been repaid to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures unique to conveyancing in Pentonville.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to appointing a Pentonville conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Pentonville conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you make enquires with several firms including non Pentonville conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm.
