My financial adviser has asked me for my Stratford lawyer’ panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Stratford branch but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Stratford property lawyer . Most Stratford conveyancing firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
I am helping my step-mother sell her flat in Stratford. Will the conveyancing solicitor commission an energy assessment or do I organise this?
After the abolition of Home Packs, EPC’s was kept a compulsory component of moving property. An EPC must be commissioned in advance of the property being marketed. This is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Stratford conveyancing lawyer they might help arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with reputable Stratford energy assessors
I am planning to move property in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Stratford. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across your website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your selling agent however this can only happen once the vendors conveyancers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. You will need to advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Stratford or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Stratford.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Stratford accepted, the owners do however have a connected purchase. The vendors have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Stratford. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Stratford conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Stratford.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can one apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Stratford conveyancing firm to assist?
if there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to determine the price.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Stratford flat is 12 Nutfield Road in July 2014. the Tribunal judged that the price to be paid by the applicants for the freehold interest should be £19,572 This case affected 2 flats.

What are the frequently found problems that you witness in leases for Stratford properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Stratford is not unique. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts. A provision to repair to or maintain parts of the premises
You may have a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Birmingham Midshires, Skipton Building Society, and Britannia all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to pull out.
