Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wimbledon

At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Wimbledon and do I need to be at the lawyers branch?

If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Wimbledon you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Wimbledon)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Wimbledon. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Wimbledon?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

A selection of lenders now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Virgin Money are being a right pain. The Wimbledon solicitor who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Virgin Money are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Virgin Money have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Virgin Money have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Virgin Money may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I got the keys to my house on 7 March and my personal details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Wimbledon advises it should be formalised in less than a month. Are titles in Wimbledon particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Wimbledon registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Wimbledon. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
