I am obtaining a mortgage with Nat West. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Selhurst. Does the Nat West Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Selhurst costs more?
Selhurst leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
We are aiming to move house in July. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Selhurst. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your property agent however this should only take place once the previous owners conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. You can advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Selhurst or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Selhurst.
I am being advised by my lawyer that lack of planning permission insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Selhurst?
The right level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Barnsley Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Selhurst agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Selhurst. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance started?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Selhurst conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for a home loan with Kent Reliance and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to press on with searches.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Selhurst is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Selhurst are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Selhurst you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Selhurst may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
