We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Swiss Cottage.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would much rather use a Swiss Cottage based conveyancing firm?

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Swiss Cottage , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my title? My Swiss Cottage conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are dealt with.

As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all put forward conveyancers to appoint. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there exists a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to choose your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers have an approved list of law firms you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.

We are in the middle of buying a house in Swiss Cottage. Conveyancing solicitor has called to say the title is "Leasehold". Will this likely adversely affect the marketability of the house?

Swiss Cottage conveyancing does not ordinarily involve leasehold houses. The key consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's virtually freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.

At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, 50 years it will have a significant impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be set out in the lease provided to your property lawyer.
