Recently asked questions about conveyancing in White City

My conveyancer has informed me that defective lease insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in White City?

The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in White City. The White City property was put into my name in June. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be impacted by that. many lenders would take a practical view as this requirement primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in White City. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

I appreciate that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I require this when buying a house in White City? or Apparently there is historic law that could mean that homeowners living in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for repairs towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this suitable for conveyancing in White City?

Unless a prior acquisition of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you may expect solicitors delivering conveyancing in White City to continue to suggest a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.

Have purchased a a terraced house in White City , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My White City conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my ownership is recorded.

As far as conveyancing in White City is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in White City before retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to grant a loan on this type of premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in White City. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in White City especially if they are acquainted with such properties in White City.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in White City

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your own,trusted White City conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.

I have been informed by numerous family members to expect up to two months for White City conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only received from the vendors conveyancer last week so does the time start running now?

One should take with some degree of scepticism any promises as to expedited completion times. Rather you should enquire about the average time it takes for them to complete White City conveyancing transactions and if they are happy to aim towards your proposed completion date for your conveyancing in White City
