Recently asked questions about conveyancing in South Harrow

I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. I intend to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in South Harrow. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?

The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in South Harrow. My lender is The Mortgage Works

The Mortgage Works have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 1/12/2022, the requirements read as follows :

We expect to receive a AIP from Barclays this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any South Harrow solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint South Harrow solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.

I have paid off my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a South Harrow property lawyer on the Aldermore panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Aldermore mortgage has been paid off.

My offer was accepted on a house in South Harrow on 11/10/2022, valuation was booked 4 days after, all came back fine. Solicitor appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Virgin Money and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I purchased my apartment on 14 January and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in South Harrow expressed confidence that it would be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in South Harrow uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in South Harrow is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am purchasing a new build house in South Harrow with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it will put at risk my mortgage with Virgin Money. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint the agent's preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in South Harrow

It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to use your preferred South Harrow conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or achieve conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.
