Do I select a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Twickenham?

There are many registered licenced Conveyancers in Twickenham and Solicitor firms in Twickenham offering conveyancing It is important to make clear that both are supervised by regulatory bodies with both specialising in the legal aspects of the home buying process. The two can deal with other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Twickenham off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Yorkshire BS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Twickenham accepted, the vendors do however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Twickenham. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Principality started?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Twickenham conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to press on with the conveyancing in Twickenham.

My wife and I are planning on selling our house in Twickenham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Twickenham. We have lived in Twickenham for three years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Twickenham I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Twickenham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Much to my surprise my property lawyer in Twickenham has requested from me identification documents stating that this forms part of his retainer as a conveyancer on the bank Conveyancing panel. This is news to me - can I refuse?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require Twickenham conveyancing solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lawyer is right that the mortgage company also require certain documents to be viewed. If a you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the lender's UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements
