I am in the market for a low cost conveyancer. Should I go for for a national conveyancer as opposed to a high street Ruislip conveyancing lawyer?
Established third party connections is an important consideration when appointing conveyancing lawyers. Ruislip conveyancers enjoy connections with financial advisers and property, local authorities, surveyors and other conveyancing firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Hosting a well rounded experience in the local area is an advantage.
My Conveyancer in Ruislip is not listed on the Nottingham Building Society Approved Panel. Can I still retain my family solicitor even though they are excluded from the Nottingham Building Society list of approved lawyers?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Carry on with your existing Ruislip solicitors but Nottingham Building Society will need to retain a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will result in additional total conveyancing charges and result in frustration.
- Choose a new lawyer to to deal with the purchase, not forgetting to check they are on the Nottingham Building Society panel
My colleague suggested that where I am purchasing in Ruislip I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
This is a search is usually included in the estimate for your Ruislip conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Ruislip around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Ruislip Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Ruislip Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Ruislip.
three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Ruislip took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 premises 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.
I am buying a new build apartment in Ruislip. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ruislip
Please supply a car parking plan. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
I bought a property in Ruislip last 27/8/2019 and to date it is still not recorded with HMLR. It was part of a development site and my property lawyer told me that it can take one year to register. I have spoken with the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. What can I do?
It is your conveyancing practitioner that you really need to turn to here in order to satisfy any concerns which have arisen as part of the registration process for your Ruislip property. Normal Ruislip conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the seller's property lawyer that they will assist in resolving any registration raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking in some way.
