Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Turnham Green

I am one month into the sale of my ground floor flat in Turnham Green and the EA has just e-mailed to advise that the buyers are swapping property lawyer. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only deal with solicitors on their approved list. On what basis would a big named lender only engage with specific solicitors rather the firm that they want to appoint to handle their conveyancing in Turnham Green ?

UK lenders have always had panels of law firms they are content to work with, but in recent years big names such as Nationwide, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for more than 15 years.

Lenders blame a rise in fraud as the reason for the pruning – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to oversee. Banks tend not to disclose how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any impact on this.

Due to move into my new home in Turnham Green next Tuesday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Turnham Green.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Turnham Green. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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 conveyancing.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Turnham Green

    Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Turnham Green I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Turnham Green suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I am using a search engine for the phrase conveyancing in Turnham Green it brings up many property lawyersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the suitable property lawyer for the sale of my house?

The preferential method of finding a suitable conveyancer is via trusted recommendation, so seek the opinion of friends and those you trust who have bought a property in Turnham Green or the respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Fees for conveyancing in Turnham Green vary, so it's sensible to secure at least four quotes from different solicitors. Be sure to obtain confirmation what costs in the quote includes.
