I have just been advised by my IFA that my Selhurst lawyer is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?

We are selling our house in Selhurst and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Selhurst lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Selhurst. Having lived in Selhurst for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Selhurst. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and The Mortgage Works. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking The Mortgage Works to clarify?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Selhurst and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Selhurst. Conveyancing is daunting 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.

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

I was recommended by a few selling agents in Selhurst to locate a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to give any referral fee for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Is there a distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Selhurst?

Conveyancing - in Selhurst or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are buying and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects before you move in.
