I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in West Thurrock for our house move. Our financial adviser has since notified us that our mortgage lenders Yorkshire Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?

Mortgage Companies tend to imposes restrictions either the type or the volume of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have limited the amount of firms they permit to represent them. You should note that Yorkshire Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Yorkshire Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there remains differing views about the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicate that hundreds of law firms, including some in or near West Thurrock only execute a couple conveyances a year.

I need some quick conveyancing in West Thurrock as I am faced with a deadline to exchange contracts within 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

As you are not getting a home loan you are at free not to have searches carried out although no solicitor would advise that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in West Thurrock the following are examples of what can be revealed and adversely affect future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Charges, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in West Thurrock. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in West Thurrock I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in West Thurrock for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

We have an offer in principle from HSBC Bank who said that they will loan up to £350k. When do we need to appoint a practitioner for conveyancing? West Thurrock is where we plan to move to.

You can appoint a solicitor now so that the conveyancing practitioner can open the ledger so they can do the ID checks etc. If and when you wish them to start work they will seek a payment on account usually about £175. That would normally be after you have the loan offer from your lender and valuation results, however if you want to expedite the process you can start quicker even though you may be risking some expense.
