Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Ham

I am nearing an exchange on a house in West Ham and my parents have transferred the exchange deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

The conveyancing practitioner is legally required to clarify with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in West Ham?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in West Ham your lawyer will request that you place them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any down payment is as part of the purchase price then this should be needed immediately before contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is needed will be payable a couple of days ahead of the day of completion.

My property lawyer in West Ham has never been on on the National Westminster Bank Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to use my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the National Westminster Bank panel?

Your options are as follows:

  1. Complete the purchase with your preferred West Ham lawyers but National Westminster Bank will need to use a lawyer on their panel. This will result in additional total conveyancing fees as well as cause delays.
  2. Find a new solicitor to act in the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the National Westminster Bank panel

I have been advised by my solicitor that flying freehold insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for West Ham conveyancing?

The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

How can we tell if a West Ham conveyancing solicitor on the Co-operative panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in West Ham obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in West Ham. I have a mortgage agreed with HSBC. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. 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 HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

Given that I am about to spend 450k on a garden flat in West Ham I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor regarding thetransaction prior to instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be conducting your property ownership legalities in West Ham.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a file number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in West Ham should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

At long last our conveyancing in West Ham is completing this Friday, but the vendors I am buying off has asked to move out the next day at midday. Can I agree to such a idea?

In situations where you need a loan then your solicitor will insist that the property isvacant on Friday - the mortgage company will demand it.
