My apartment in Streatham is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the property lawyer have to be required to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Bank of Ireland 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 at the moment.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Streatham prior to instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not give a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Streatham. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's recommended solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Streatham

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to instruct your preferred Streatham conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.

How does one remove a departed person's name from the title deeds for a property in Streatham?

If a Streatham property is jointly owned and one of the owners dies, the name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds. It is not necessary to remove their name as in the event of a disposal you would simply be required to supply proof why the co proprietor is not a party to the transfer, normally this is in the form of a grant of probate.

With the aim of making things smoother for the sale of the property you may apply to have the deceased name removed from the title register by submitting an application to HMLR with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
