Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Willesden

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Willesden. What is the rationale as to why all Willesden conveyancers aren't included on all bank panels?

Lenders tend to restrict either the nature or the number of conveyancing firms on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm needs to have at least two partners. In addition to restricting the nature of firm, some have decided to limit the size of their panel they use to act for them. It is worth noting that lenders have no responsibility for the standard of service given by any Willesden conveyancer on their panel. Property fraud was the primary trigger for the culling of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are opposing assessments about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from HM Land Registry exposes that thousands of law practices only conduct a couple of conveyances annually. Those supporting conveyancing panel pruning ask why law firms deserve any entitlement to be listed on a bank panel when it is evident that conveyancing is not their primary expertise?

Please help. My Willesden conveyancer is advising me that he has toorder Willesden conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santanderconveyancing panel. These Willesden searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Willesden conveyancing searches.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Willesden 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?

You no longer need to have the physical deeds to evidence that you own the land or property, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Willesden and how can you help?

The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to business tenants, giving them the right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act to your advantage and handle your commercial conveyancing in Willesden

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their chosen solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Willesden

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Willesden conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets set by HQ.

Me and my husband are first time buyers just having agreed a price on a property in Willesden, and are now looking to get solicitors instructed. We have utilised the numerous comparison based websites and the results are from all over the the UK. Is it essential to have a Willesden solicitor local to your potential property? I am happy to do everything electronically, but I guess at some stage we may be required to physically go into the conveyancing practitioner's office to sign contracts?

There is no requirement to attend the office of your conveyancing practitioner, they can send any relevant contracts to you, which you can sign and send back. Many home movers nevertheless opt to instruct a locally based solicitor, but it is not a prerequisite for conveyancing in Willesden.
