Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stratford

We are purchasing a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Stratford who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Co-operative . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Stratford.

I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Stratford. My lender is Nationwide Building Society

Nationwide Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 23/7/2024, the requirements read as follows :

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Principality. Stratford conveyancing solicitors were appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Principality?

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

I am expecting a DIP from UBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any Stratford solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Stratford solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.

I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Stratford building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Stratford conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Your solicitor has to follow the CML Handbook Part 2 specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

The deeds to my property are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Stratford 4 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

You no longer need to have the physical official documentation to prove you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, given that the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Stratford and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act affords protection to business leaseholders, giving them the right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Stratford

Developers have suggested I use a solicitor and I've received an estimate from them. It's nearly two hundred pounds less expensive than my preferred Stratford conveyancing practitioner. What's the catch?

Builders often have panels of lawyers who are quick and who know the developer’s contract and property lawyer. As many developers offer an inducement to use a preferred conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a builder will not suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they require an exchange in 28 days. The argument for not agreeing to use the suggested solicitor is that they may be reluctant to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should stick with your high street Stratford solicitor.
