Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Twyford

My IFA has asked me for my Twyford lawyer’ panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have called my local Twyford branch but they have not responded to me.

You are best placed to get this information from your Twyford conveyancer . Most Twyford law firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.

At what point does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Twyford and do I need to attend the lawyers branch?

Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Twyford you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Twyford)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Twyford for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage lenders Santander won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?

Before the recession most lenders had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Twyford conveyancing firms would have been on many bank panels. The FSA in 2010 conducted a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies are increasingly seeing more data from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of transactions. Many Twyford conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Twyford is one of the thousands of areas where the conveyancers showing on our search results are members of the panel for Santander.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Twyford completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Twyford is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Twyford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Twyford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Twyford may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I work for a reputable estate agency in Twyford where we see a number of leasehold sales derailed due to short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Twyford conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the seller of a flat can commence the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I bought a basement flat in Twyford, conveyancing having been completed in 2012. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Twyford with an extended lease are worth £191,000. The ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease terminates on 21st October 2076

With 54 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £31,400 and £36,200 plus legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
