The Upper Walthamstow conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my purchase in Upper Walthamstow have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I needed a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my preferred Upper Walthamstow lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What should be my next steps?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton 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 lawyers should be in a position to help.
We previously selected conveyancers with offices in Upper Walthamstow on the RBS solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional sum for dealing with the RBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by RBS?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by RBS but by your Upper Walthamstow lawyer. Plenty of firms on the RBS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Upper Walthamstow. I have a mortgage offer with TSB. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have 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 TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.
The mortgage over my property is with Coventry BS for my property in Upper Walthamstow. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?
Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel lawyer.
