Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Essex

The Essex conveyancing firm handling our Essex conveyancing has uncovered an inconsistency when comparing the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor has advised that he is duty bound to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s approach appropriate?

Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Essex costs more?

Essex leasehold conveyancing transactions usually involve additional investigations than freeholds including investigating the Lease, liaising with the Landlord such as serving relevant notices on the Landlord or managing agent, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining Landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts and formation documents.

What happens if my solicitor is suspended from the Nationwide Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Essex?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I have justdiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Essex for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Essex conveyancing specialists.
