Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Roehampton

Finally the sale completed on my house in Roehampton last December yet the purchaser is texting me to moan that her solicitor needs to hear from mine. What should have happened following completion?

Following your house sale your lawyer should forward the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. If applicable, your conveyancer must also evidence that the mortgage has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Roehampton.

I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Roehampton. Will the solicitor arrange the EPC or it is for the seller to see to?

After the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s was kept a compulsory element of moving house. An energy assessment needs to be to hand prior to the property being placed on the market. This is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers normally arrange. Where you are using a Roehampton conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with long established local assessors

My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Roehampton. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?

Having exchanged you must instruct a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of priority as you now have a pending a drop dead date to complete the purchase. Every auction property will have an associated auction set of papers. This will likely include most,if not all of the paperwork that your solicitor will need. In the case of leasehold property the legal pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property. You need to hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Roehampton building society branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Roehampton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 remaining.

A relative advised me that if I am buying in Roehampton I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

This is a search is occasionally included in the estimate for your Roehampton conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Roehampton around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Roehampton Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Roehampton.

2 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Roehampton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Are there any apps to help search for a Roehampton law firm on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? I am a keen cyclist and am prepared to travel upto 25miles to meet the lawyer.

You can use the tool on this website. Please pick a lender and your location and you will see a number of Roehampton conveyancing lawyers located nearest you. We have detailed some Roehampton conveyancing firms towards the end of this page and you can telephone them to see whether they are on the Bank of Ireland panel

Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the mortgage company approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
