Can I be sure that the Stoke Newington conveyancing solicitor on the TSB panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Stoke Newington obtaining recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer handling your conveyancing.
My sealed bid on a semi in Stoke Newington has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Stoke Newington. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with TSB started?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Stoke Newington conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
How does conveyancing in Stoke Newington differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Stoke Newington approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Stoke Newington tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Stoke Newington or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Stoke Newington is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Stoke Newington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Stoke Newington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stoke Newington may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Stoke Newington and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to gives a safeguard to business leaseholders, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a new tenancy and continue in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
