Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sutton

Can you help? My Sutton solicitor is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Sutton conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. These Sutton searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Sutton conveyancing searches.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Sutton. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Barnsley Building Society conveyancing panel. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

You should phone your conveyancer and enquire whether they can act for the bank. Otherwise please call Barnsley Building Society who may be able to confirm.

The deeds to our house can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Sutton 10 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be retained by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and get up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Sutton in advance of appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not grant a loan on a flying freehold premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check 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 Sutton. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Sutton to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

Taking into account that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on 3 bedroom house in Sutton I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thetransaction prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we recommend - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer who will be doing your conveyancing in Sutton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a file number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Sutton should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we use their chosen lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Sutton

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Sutton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.
