Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Plaistow

I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must leave my let out apartment in Plaistow by 20/1/2020. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Can I complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?

What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the Leeds Building Society Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Plaistow?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Have purchased a a detached house in Plaistow , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Plaistow conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration formalities are dealt with.

As far as conveyancing in Plaistow registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the new owner has moved in to the property thus registration formalities is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am buying a new build house in Plaistow with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my lawyer about this extras as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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 put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Plaistow is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Plaistow are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Plaistow you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Plaistow may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 property.
