I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Shadwell off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Santander. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Santander, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel.
Santander have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Shadwell has been agreed to, what are the next steps?
The estate agent will want to be informed of your property lawyer's details (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Contact Santander or your broker and complete any outstanding forms. Santander will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to schedule a time for the valuation to take place. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days to get a mortgage offer. Santander will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers.

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Shadwell conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
The deeds to our home are lost. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Shadwell 4 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.
I was advised by a few selling agents in Shadwell to find a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your lawyers ahead of another?
We don’t make any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
