Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Preston Park

Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Preston Park conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the RBS conveyancing panel?

Preston Park conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from RBS directly.

Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Preston Park. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we will need to put our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the process as FTB of a ground floor flat in Preston Park. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Preston Park?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Preston Park bank branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Preston Park conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your property lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
