My grandmother passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Southfields. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Principality, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

If you plan to refinance then Principality will require that you use a conveyancer on the Principality conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Principality conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Principality mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home buying as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Southfields. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Southfields?

On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Southfields. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.

I am being told by my conveyancer that breach of easement insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Southfields?

The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Virgin Money. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. Southfields conveyancing lawyers are chosen. How long does it take for Leeds Building Society to issue the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Leeds Building Society completed the valuation? Have you advised Leeds Building Society as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Southfields I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Southfields suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Should I go with a Southfields conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? An old friend can deal with the legal formalities but her office is over three hundred miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Southfields conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Southfields conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.

Is it true that a Southfields conveyancing company has court proceedings brought against them by clients for failing to conduct the appropriate conveyancing searches?

We are not aware of such a Southfields conveyancing matter but according to a recent report, a couple purchasing a property elsewhere in England successfully sued their conveyancer due to development permission to erect a wind farm not being picked up in conveyancing searches.

Where you are thinking of buying a home in Southfields It is important that your solicitor purchase all Southfields conveyancing searches required to ensure you have relevant and up to date information before acquiring a property.
