Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Purley

I instructed a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Purley recently. Upon checking the official terms of business I notewe are responsible for costs even if the movedoes not happen. Would I be best advised to choose a web based conveyancing company offering no move no charge conveyancing in Purley?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to cover those transactions that do not proceed. Do bear in mind that such deals generally do not protect you from outlay such your Purley conveyancing search costs.

The Purley conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my purchase in Purley have without warning shut down. I chose them because I needed a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and my preferred Purley lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.

Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Edwardian property in Purley. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Purley and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Purley with a mortgage from Halifax. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

Any property in Purley that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HM Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Purley property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Many Purley conveyancing lawyers will be able to handle this type of conveyancing but in the event that uncertainty prevails the usual recommendation nowadays is for the seller’s conveyancer to register the title first and then deal with the dispose of the property to the purchaser - this will predictably result in a significant delay.
