Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Wickham

I am aiming to move house in April. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in West Wickham. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your site.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the selling agent but this can only happen after the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. You can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in West Wickham or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in West Wickham.

We have agreed to purchase a house in West Wickham. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. TSB have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that your lender is TSB your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to TSB where a lease fails to satisfy these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to West Wickham.

My offer was accepted on a house in West Wickham on 28/12/2022, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Solicitor instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in West Wickham. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in West Wickham

    The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in West Wickham I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in West Wickham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I am downsizing from my house. My past solicitors closed down. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in West Wickham if that makes things easier.

Do use our search tool to help you choose a solicitor for your conveyancing in West Wickham. We have connected thousands of home buyers and sellers with regulated solicitors to ensure that the legalities of their house move goes with a minimum of fuss.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct their recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in West Wickham

It is improbable the sellers are driving this. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted West Wickham conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets set by corporate headquarters.

The lawyers undertaking our conveyancing in West Wickham has forwarded papers to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in West Wickham should be registered?

Almost all property in West Wickham is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many West Wickham conveyancing solicitors should be capable of dealing with this type of conveyancing but where uncertainty prevails the prevailing proposition nowadays seems to be for the vendor’s solicitor to undertake the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the transfer to the buyer - this will have a knock on effect to result in a protracted transaction.
