I am getting a mortgage with Halifax. I hope to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in South Harrow. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Halifax conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
We are aiming to move property in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in South Harrow. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the selling agent however this should only be done once the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. You can tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in South Harrow or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in South Harrow.
I have been told by my lawyer that absentee landlord insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for South Harrow conveyancing?
The appropriate level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
We expect to receive a OIP from Clydesdale this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Clydesdale recommend any South Harrow solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint South Harrow solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.
Do commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may affect a commercial estate in South Harrow?
Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in South Harrow will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in South Harrow. The search result sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in South Harrow.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in South Harrow it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately could result in delays to South Harrow commercial conveyancing transactions as well as pose a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not conducted for domestic conveyancing in South Harrow.
My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in South Harrow. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in South Harrow and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
