Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Queen's Park

My Queen's Park lawyer has uncovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My solicitor informs me that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s approach appropriate?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

My fiance and I are buying a newly converted apartment in Queen's Park with a loan from Halifax.We have a Queen's Park conveyancing solicitor but Halifax advised that she’s not on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Halifax panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Halifax conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Halifax

Will my solicitor be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Queen's Park.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers dealing with homes in Queen's Park. There are those who purchase a house in Queen's Park, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Queen's Park. The standard completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual question of the seller to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages resulting from an inaccurate answer. The buyer’s lawyers may also order an enviro search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.

The deeds to my house are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Queen's Park 4 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?

These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will know exactly where to look for all the appropriate paperwork so you may buy or dispose of your property without any difficulty. If copies are not available, your conveyancer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on your property.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Queen's Park I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Queen's Park in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

My partner and I plan to purchase our 1st property in Queen's Park. Conveyancing solicitor has been chosen. The broker suggested that a survey is not needed as the house is only 17 years old.

You would be well advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. As the premises was constructed more than a decade ago the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be sufficient. They will highlight any obvious issues and suggest additional investigation if appropriate. Where there are any indications of problems seek a full Building Survey from the beginning.
