  • 2 Firms accustomed to conveyancing in Sheen Park regularly deal withlocal issues peculiar to Sheen Park and therefore you may benefit from better guidance and faster conveyancing.
  • 3 Using a high street Solicitor on the whole means that you will receive a more bespoke service. When using a large conveyancing firm, you tend to be looked after by a team of people who who progress matters by determining whether the ‘computers says no’.
  • 4 The companies identified on our directory have a variation of conveyancing lawyers, legal executives and support staff handling over one hundred thousand cases annually.
  • 5 The hallmark of our conveyancing solicitors in Sheen Park is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) sometimes falls short of the level of professionalism you will expect.

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sheen Park

The Sheen Park conveyancing firm handling our Sheen Park conveyancing has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he must check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach appropriate?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Sheen Park? What am I being asked for?

Sheen Park conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers accross the UK have a duty under money laundering regulations to verify the identity of any client with a view to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients are required to provide two forms of certified ID; proof of ID (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (usually a Bank Statement less than 3 months old).

Proof of the origin of monies is also necessary in accordance with the money laundering laws as conveyancers are obliged to ensure that the funds you are utilising to acquire a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase amount if you are a cash purchaser) has come from a reputable source (such as employment savings) as opposed to the product of criminal behaviour.

We are due to move house in September. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Sheen Park. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent but this should only happen once the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Sheen Park or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Sheen Park.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Leeds Building Society are being pedantic. The Sheen Park solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Leeds Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My offer was accepted on a property in Sheen Park on 3/5/2024, valuation was booked 2 days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Bank of Ireland and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the number one cause of hinderance in Sheen Park conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Sheen Park.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Sheen Park I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sheen Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

My husband and I yesterday become aware that one of the directors of the law firm acting on the purchase conveyancing in Sheen Park is an uncle of the vendor. Is this permitted?

Provided there is no conflict of interest this should be fine. If you are obtaining mortgage finance then the mortgage company may have a say as many lenders have specific requirements on this. For example for Leeds Building Society as of 13/6/2024, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Yes, provided that:

• a different person deals with the conveyance (i.e. not the borrower);

• there is no conflict of interest and none arises during the transaction; and

• the Law Society guidelines are followed.
