I chose a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Redbridge recently. Going through the official terms of business it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for costs even if the dealdoes not happen. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based conveyancing company who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Redbridge?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to cover the transactions that do not proceed. You should be mindful that these schemes tend not to protect you from expenses for instance Redbridge conveyancing search expenses.
My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Redbridge. I I would like to check if they are accepted on the Nottingham Building Society approved list of lawyers. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
The first thing to do is phone your conveyancer and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you can call Nottingham Building Society who may be able to help.
We were going to get a AIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Redbridge solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Redbridge solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
I have a mortgage with RBS for my property in Redbridge. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform RBS?
RBS must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of RBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact RBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a RBS conveyancing panel solicitor.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Redbridge. 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 Kent Reliance 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 Redbridge conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that could impact a commercial site in Redbridge?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Redbridge will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Redbridge. The report provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Redbridge.

The lawyers handling our conveyancing in Redbridge has sent papers to review that state the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all property in Redbridge should be registered?
Although most properties in Redbridge are now registered with the Land Registry there are still a few that are unregistered. Any property in Redbridge 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 Redbridge property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Redbridge conveyancing solicitors should be capable of dealing with such matters but where uncertainty reigns the usual recommendation these days is for the seller’s conveyancer to register it first and subsequently deal with the sale conveyance - this will predictably result in a prolonged transaction.
