Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Whetstone

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (seven years built) in Whetstone. Almost all the properties are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Whetstone?

You would be taking a significant risk in refusing to carrying out Whetstone conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would absolutely advise in no uncertain terms that you have them. Where time pressures and price are primary concerns you should discuss with your lawyer about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you

we are a couple who wish to acquire a newbuild apartment in Whetstone with a residential mortgage from Clydesdale.We have a Whetstone conveyancing solicitor but Clydesdale advised that he's not listed on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Clydesdale panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Clydesdale use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the Clydesdale approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Clydesdale

Will our conveyancer be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Whetstone.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Whetstone. There are those who buy a property in Whetstone, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Whetstone. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual question of the owner to discover whether the property has ever been flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect answer. A purchaser’s solicitors will also commission an enviro search. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.
