Reasons to use our Stoke Newington conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 Using a local Solicitor generally results in a more bespoke service. Sometimes when dealing with 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’.
  • 2 There is a better than average chance that the other side’s solicitors have offices in Stoke Newington - if so sets of solicitors will have worked on conveyancing matters in the past
  • 3 The hallmark of our conveyancing solicitors in Stoke Newington is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by national chain estate agents) sometimes falls short of the high standards of professionalism you will expect.
  • 4 Low cost packages from online conveyancers might be tempting. However, these firms are often located hundreds of miles away with little understanding of the factors that impact property transactions in Stoke Newington
  • 5 Stoke Newington property lawyers are likely to be familiar with the local Land Registry Office, Local Authority and estate agents

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stoke Newington

My home in Stoke Newington is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does the conveyancing practitioner need to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently in recent years.

My partner and I are at the point of looking at flats in Stoke Newington and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with HSBC.

It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are seeking a mortgage with HSBC, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Clydesdale are being problematic. The Stoke Newington solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Clydesdale are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale 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.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Stoke Newington is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

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

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for hinderance in Stoke Newington house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Stoke Newington.

The vast majority of premises in Stoke Newington should be revealed. Have you tried a search with just the postcode. Usually it will identify all the houses and flats inside that postcode.
