Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Upper Norwood

Please help. My Upper Norwood solicitor is informing me me that she is duty bound toconduct Upper Norwood conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer correct?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a home loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Upper Norwood conveyancing searches.

Completed the sale of my flat in Upper Norwood last May yet the purchaser is e-mailing me to moan that his solicitor is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What should have happened following completion?

Post completion of your house sale your solicitor is duty bound to send the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. Where relevant, your solicitor must also evidence that the home loan has been redeemed to the buyers lawyers. There are no post completion steps specific conveyancing in Upper Norwood.

The Upper Norwood conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my purchase in Upper Norwood have without warning shut down. I only went with them because I had to have a lawyer on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel and my preferred Upper Norwood lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.

I am helping my niece sell her property in Upper Norwood. Will the solicitor commission the energy assessment or it is for me to coordinate?

After the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s was left as a required element of moving house. An energy performance certificate must be to hand prior to the property being put on the market. It is not something that law firms normally arrange. If you are using a Upper Norwood conveyancing solicitor they might be willing to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with reputable local energy assessors

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Upper Norwood. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Upper Norwood?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Upper Norwood. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

I have paid off my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a Upper Norwood solicitor on the Santander panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Santander mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Santander mortgage from the register. Santander, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Santander has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Santander mortgage has been paid off.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Upper Norwood. I happened to land on a site which appears to be the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all formalities done via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?
