Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Ealing

My partner and I are acquiring a brand new apartment in West Ealing and my conveyancer is telling me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the builder. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and my preference is not to prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in West Ealing. Conveyancing solicitors have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to track down the deeds. Is this a major issue?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by your mortgage company or they may be archived with the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in West Ealing relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Bank of Ireland Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in West Ealing?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

What does commercial conveyancing in West Ealing cover?
