Is it the case that all Streatham solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be governed by the CLC.

My offer was accepted on a property in Streatham on 30/11/2021, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Solicitor instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Are UBS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

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

I'm purchasing a new build house in Streatham benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the extras as it may put at risk my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Streatham is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Streatham are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Streatham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Streatham may ascertain 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 premises.

Given that I am about to spend £400,000 on a property in Streatham I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor concerning thehouse move prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer who will be carrying out your conveyancing in Streatham.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a case number.

I today plan to offer on a house that seems to be perfect, at a reasonable price which is making it all the more appealing. I have just found out that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues purchasing a house with a leasehold title in Streatham. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?

The majority of houses in Streatham are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are purchasing in Streatham in which case you should be shopping around for a Streatham conveyancing practitioner and check that they are used to advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a tenant you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the landlord’sconsent to carry out changes to the property. It may be necessary to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the estate where the property is part of an estate. Your conveyancer should advise you fully on all the issues.

My wife and I have hit a brick wall in trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in Streatham. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Streatham conveyancing firm who can help.
