Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sutton

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Sutton costs more?

Sutton leasehold conveyancing transactions usually involve additional investigations than freeholds including investigating the Lease, liaising with the Landlord such as serving applicable notices on the Landlord or managing agent, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining Landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts and formation documents.

Various web forums that I have visited warn that are the number one reason for delay in Sutton conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Sutton.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Sutton completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Sutton before appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks will not grant a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Sutton. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Sutton especially if they are familiar with such properties in Sutton.

How do I use your search facility to find a conveyancing practitioner in Sutton on the authorised to act for my bank?

1st choose a bank such as HSBC Bank, The Royal Bank of Scotland or Barclays Direct then specify your location for example Sutton. Conveyancing practices in Sutton and across England and Wales will then be listed.

Me and my partner are buying a four room bungalowin Sutton with a mortgage from a bank. We have a conveyancer in Sutton yet our mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our bank panel firms or keep our Sutton solicitor and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The lender home loan issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Sutton : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
