Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shoreditch

Me and my partner are purchasing a 3 bedroom flat in Shoreditch with a mortgage. We like our Shoreditch lawyer, but the bank says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or keep our Shoreditch conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We feel that this is inequitable; can we not insist that the mortgage company use our Shoreditch property lawyer ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Shoreditch conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Shoreditch. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Shoreditch

    Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Shoreditch I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Shoreditch in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
