Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West London

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in West London is not on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?

That is more than likely a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should simply call the West London conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

Can the conveyancing solicitors identified via your search tool execute auction conveyancing in West London?

There are a few auction lawyers we can put you in touch with those conducting auction conveyancing. West London is one of our locations in which our lawyers have offices.

I have 70 years remaining on my lease and need a lease extension for my apartment in West London. Conveyancing solicitors on the Accord Mortgages panel can deal with such extensions correct?

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are securing a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Accord Mortgages have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 24/5/2024 the requirements read as follows :

85 years from the date of completion of the mortgage. Please ensure that you explain the implications of a short term lease to the borrower.

I moved into my home on 13 February and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in West London advises it would be registered in a couple of weeks. Are properties in West London uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in West London registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any 3rd parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration occurs once the new owner is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in West London before instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a mortgage on such a home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in West London. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Is it best to instruct a West London conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can conduct the legal formalities but his firm is located approximately 350kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local West London conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and they were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar West London conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
