Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sydenham

I am hoping to receive a mortgage offer from Halifax. I would like to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Sydenham. Does the Halifax Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

The Halifax approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

AssumingI was to purchase a freehold housein Sydenham mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Sydenham?

Any savings you would make would be isolated to the costs for searches. A conveyancer still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors conveyancing practitioner, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be significant.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Sydenham. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Sydenham?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Sydenham. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.

Is it the case that all Sydenham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Nottingham conveyancing list of approved practices?

A selection of banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.

I have a mortgage with Lloyds for my property in Sydenham. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Lloyds?

Lloyds must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel firm.

I have justbecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Sydenham for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sydenham conveyancing specialists.

What does commercial conveyancing in Sydenham cover?

Commercial conveyancing in Sydenham covers a broad range of advice, offered by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of leases.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's chosen solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Sydenham

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is counter productive. Contact the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Sydenham conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
