Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Radlett

I can't travel far from Radlett. Is there a reason why all Radlett conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all lender panels?

Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in banks and building societies culling less reputable firms off their books of approved conveyancing practitioners .

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Radlett is more expensive?

Radlett leasehold conveyancing transactions usually involve additional investigations than freeholds including investigating the Lease, liaising with the Landlord such as serving appropriate notices on the Landlord or managing agent, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining Landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts and formation documents.

My husband and I have arranged the release of further funds on our home loan from TSB as we wish to carry out alterations to our home in Radlett. Do we need to appoint a bricks and mortar Radlett solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

TSB do not ordinarily instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB panel.

I am buying a property in Radlett. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender TSB be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with TSB your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to TSB where a lease fails to comply with these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Radlett.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Radlett. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Radlett conveyancing practitioner is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
