Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Poplar

We were about to retain a conveyancing solicitor in Poplar listed using your comparison tool but have come across alternative costs illustrations on the internet seem less pricey – how come?

One can find many firms of solicitors advertising so-called cut-price conveyancing, unfortunately it’s common in such cases for supplementalcharges result in the completion invoice being inflated. Solicitors ought to ensure charges set out in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable raised The law firms that we list for conveyancing in Poplar genuinely set out all costs for the property you intend tobuy.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Skipton are being difficult. The Poplar solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Skipton are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Nationwide have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in Poplar has been agreed to, what happens next?

Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (be sure the solicitors are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Nationwide or the financial adviser and finalise any appropriate forms. Nationwide will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to schedule a slot for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will send the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Poplar.

I have finally had an offer on a maisonette in Poplar accepted, the sellers do however have a dependent purchase. The sellers have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Poplar. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Leeds Building Society going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Poplar conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Leeds Building Society and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to press on with the conveyancing in Poplar.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Poplar 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.

How does conveyancing in Poplar differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Poplar contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Poplar typically buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Poplar or who has acted in the same development.
