Intending to buy a house in Tolworth. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Tolworth property lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

Will my conveyancer be making enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Tolworth.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Tolworth. Plenty of people will buy a house in Tolworth, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Tolworth. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading answer. A purchaser’s solicitors may also order an environmental report. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Tolworth in advance of instructing conveyancers.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Tolworth. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Tolworth to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

I am using a search engine for the phrase cheap conveyancing in Tolworth it reveals numerous conveyancersin the vicinity. With so much choice what is the best way to find the suitable property lawyer for purchase transaction?

The best method of seeking the right conveyancer is through a personal testimonial, so enquire of friends and family who have purchased a property in Tolworth or a respected estate agent or mortgage broker.

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Tolworth conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Tolworth property is Flat D 15 Claremont Gardens in September 2013. TheTribunal determined in accordance with section48 and Schedule13 of the Leasehold Reform,Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease should be fourteen thousand one hundred and eighty seven pounds (£14,187.00) This case related to 1 flat.

What are the frequently found problems that you witness in leases for Tolworth properties?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Tolworth. All leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain sections are missing. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Repairing obligations to or maintain parts of the property A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.

You may have difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Nationwide Building Society, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and TSB all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to withdraw.
