Can I use your services to recommend a Conveyancing solicitor in Streatham even where I’m not purchasing or selling a house, for example if I intend to buy an office in Streatham with a loan from Chelsea Building Society?

Our search tool is mainly utilised to help choose domestic conveyancing solicitors in Streatham but we have set out at the end of this page a selection of Streatham commercial conveyancing firms. You will need to make contact with the firm directly to see if they are also authorised to represent Chelsea Building Society

When it comes to lenders such as Virgin Money, do Streatham conveyancers face an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Streatham building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Streatham conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Provided that the lawyer is on the bank approved list, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Planning on purchasing a flat in Streatham. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Streatham lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

My partner and I are downsizing from our property in Streatham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Streatham lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Streatham. We have lived in Streatham for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

How does conveyancing in Streatham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Streatham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Streatham typically acquire the land, 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 Streatham or who has acted in the same development.

My company is hoping to take over a lease of a shop on the high street. Can you recommend solicitors offering competitive fees for commercial conveyancing in Streatham for less than 1500k?

We can recommend firms who have an in-depth of experience of commercial conveyancing in Streatham, including the sale and acquisition of businesses as well as simply property. If you are intending to purchase or sell a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail premises or a whole business we can put you in touch with the right lawyer. As for the costs this will depend on the structure and heads of terms of the proposed transaction. Let us have your details or email us so that we may provide you with a detailed commercial conveyancing calculation.
