Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wooburn Green

Having sold my house in Wooburn Green last March yet the purchaser is e-mailing me to say her lawyer needs to hear from myconveyancer. What should have happened now that I have sold?

Following your sale your conveyancer is duty bound to deliver the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s conveyancer. Where relevant, your solicitor should also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the buyers conveyancers. There are no post completion procedures specific conveyancing in Wooburn Green.

When looking at online forums for an affordable lawyer in Wooburn Green, many comment that I should look for a CQS kitemarked lawyer. What is CQS?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in buying or selling property, trusted by some of the UK's major lenders. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Wooburn Green is one of the many areas in England and Wales where there are Accredited solicitors.

Can you point me to a directory of Kent Reliance panel conveyancers in Wooburn Green on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings viewable online. If you are seeking to appoint a Wooburn Green conveyancing practitioner on the Kent Reliance please use our tool.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Wooburn Green. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being a right pain. The Wooburn Green solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance 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.

How does conveyancing in Wooburn Green differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Wooburn Green approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Wooburn Green tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wooburn Green or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Wooburn Green ahead of appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to grant a mortgage on such a house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions from Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can check with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Wooburn Green. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

My partner is purchasing a leasehold flat in Wooburn Green. He has received a fee estimate by the solicitor connected to the estate agents and it came to £1385 . It was 7 years ago I sold and purchased a home and the fee was £495. Have charges really gone up that much?

We would recommend that you visit two or three local Wooburn Green conveyancing firms requesting estimates. You should base your decision not just on cost, but on promptness and on how comprehensive the reply is.
