Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tolworth

Can you help? My Tolworth conveyancer is informing me me that he is legally obliged toapply for Tolworth conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer correct?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Tolworth conveyancing searches.

We are purchasing a newbuild flat in Tolworth with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd.We like our Tolworth conveyancing practitioner but Accord Mortgages Ltd says he's not on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for a Accord Mortgages Ltd panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the Accord Mortgages Ltd solicitor panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find 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. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Accord Mortgages Ltd

Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are the primary cause of delay in Tolworth house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Tolworth.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Tolworth?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Tolworth. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Tolworth I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Tolworth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

I am downsizing from my house. My past lawyers closed down. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Tolworth if that affects matters.
