Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Roehampton

My best friend’s sister is a conveyancing practitioner. I suspect that I will receive preferential rates for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what kind of fees would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Roehampton?

You should contrast pricing. Make use of our search tool on this page. You will notice that quotes will contrast greatly but the service one can expect differ between conveyancers as is true with the vast majority of professional services.

We are purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Roehampton who is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for RBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Roehampton.

We wanted to use a property lawyer in Roehampton for our home move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage lenders Skipton Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

A decade ago most banks had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Roehampton conveyancing firms would have been on most lender panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies are increasingly seeing more information from law firms about their operations and their employees and set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of conveyancing. Many Roehampton conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have Unblemished track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Roehampton is amongst the numerous areas where the lawyers we recommend are are approved Skipton Building Society.

We had chosen solicitors located in Roehampton on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional amount for the legal aspects of the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner can charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Roehampton conveyancer. Some firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

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

Given that your lender is Nottingham your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nottingham. The CML Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Nottingham where a lease fails to meet these provisions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Roehampton.

I currently have a mortgage with Nationwide for my property in Roehampton. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Nationwide?

Nationwide must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nationwide will permit you to let 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 Nationwide directly. You need not do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Roehampton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Roehampton. We have lived in Roehampton for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we use their preferred solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Roehampton

It is improbable the vendors are behind this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Roehampton conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will provide the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by HQ.
