  • 2 Retaining the services of a high street Solicitor on the whole means that you will receive a more personalised service.

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Hampstead

It has come to my attention via my IFA that my West Hampstead solicitor is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. How can I be sure whether this is correct?

You need to call your West Hampstead conveyancer. You lawyer should inform you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.

My wife and I are getting closer to an exchange on a house in West Hampstead and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my conveyancer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to delay the deal?

Your conveyancing practitioner is obliged to check with lender to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only notify this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
