We are purchasing a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Totteridge who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Co-operative . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Totteridge.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Yorkshire BS are being difficult. The Totteridge solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Yorkshire BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Leeds Building Society. Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Totteridge is approved on their conveyancing panel? Leeds Building Society have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Nationwide have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a apartment in Totteridge has been accepted, what are the next steps?
Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (make sure the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Nationwide or the financial adviser and complete any outstanding documentation. Nationwide will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to schedule a slot for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Totteridge.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Totteridge?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Totteridge. 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…’
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Totteridge. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Totteridge
Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I own a leasehold flat in Totteridge. Conveyancing and Leeds Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Totteridge who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?
First contact HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. You do not need to incur the fees of a Totteridge conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
