Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Potters Bar

Me and my husband are buying a leasehold flat in Potters Bar. My property lawyer is not listed on the lender solicitor panel. Can I still retain my Potters Bar conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company approved list?

One will need to appoint a lawyer to deal with the formalities if you need a mortgage to buy your property. They will carry out all the essential legal checks on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. One could appoint a Potters Bar solicitor of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the solicitor appointed is not on the bank approved list supplemental fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so where your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they should do so.

Our son is about to exchange on a newly built flat in Potters Bar with a mortgage from Lloyds. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Potters Bar. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Potters Bar - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

After years of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Potters Bar. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Potters Bar conveyancing firm who can help.

My father-in-law mentioned that when choosing a conveyancing firm they need approved by your mortgage company. I am novice purchaser but I have an AIP via HSBC and I already have a high street conveyancing lawyer in Potters Bar on standby. Does HSBC need an approved lawyer to be instructed? Does a directory of approved conveyancers even exist for my conveyancing in Potters Bar?

You need to instruct a solicitor that is on the HSBC panel. The simplest thing to do is call your preferred Potters Bar conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the HSBC panel. If they are not approved you have a number of alternatives open to you here:

  • Proceed with your preferred Potters Bar lawyer but HSBC will undoubtedly appoint a property lawyer on their approved list. This will result in additional fees together with probable delay.
  • Choose a new solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your lawyer to attempt to join the lender panel.
