Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Twyford

I can't travel far from Twyford. I would like to know the reason why all Twyford conveyancers aren't automatically on all bank panels?

Pre- 2008 most lenders had an approach to risk which is different from today. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 instigated a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the property lawyers on your panel. As a result, lenders have since looked to extract more information from law firms regarding their processes and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Many firms have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the minimum volume of transactions the lenders set.

Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Twyford conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel?

Twyford conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Kent Reliance directly.

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of hinderance in Twyford conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Twyford.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Twyford I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Twyford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
