I sincerely hope you can help me. My Upton Park lawyer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Upton Park conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Upton Park conveyancing searches.

The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Upton Park conveyancing specialists.

Back In 2006, I bought a leasehold house in Upton Park. Conveyancing and The Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing practitioner in Upton Park who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Upton Park conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

My mother completed her conveyancing in Upton Park in 2005. She has since got married, widowed and in recent months got remarried. She now wishes to the sell the Upton Park property. I believe she will simply be asked to supply copies of her marriage papers to the solicitor however she is anxious it will hold up the house sale. Is it worth updating the Land Registry details for the property?
It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register on the basis that you have the proof required to demonstrate how the change of name occurred.
The purchaser’s conveyancing practitioner should check the registered information and need evidence to establish the change of name for example marriage certificates.
