Much to our surprise we have been notified by our IFA that my West Ham solicitor is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. How can I be sure if this is correct?
The first thing you need to do is to call your West Ham lawyer directly. You lawyer should inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a West Ham conveyancing practice that is on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
I am due to move property in February. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in West Ham. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your selling agent but this can only be done once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you can inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in West Ham or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in West Ham.
We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers based in West Ham on the Principality solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further amount for dealing with the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Principality but by your West Ham solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Principality panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in West Ham. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £150. Not long after, the lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Yorkshire BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I got the keys to my apartment on 1 May and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in West Ham expressed confidence that it will be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in West Ham uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in West Ham is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I am buying a garden maisonette in West Ham. Conveyancing lawyer has been awaiting, from the vendor, building insurance schedule.

Is it strictly necessary? We have been stalled for the last two weeks…
It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in West Ham to find Conveyancing in West Ham in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the freeholder insuring the entire building - which is definitely preferable.
