Is it the case that all Finsbury Park CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the HSBC conveyancing panel?

It is true that some lenders now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their panels.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, UBS are being problematic. The Finsbury Park solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but UBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Georgian property in Finsbury Park. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and National Westminster Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Finsbury Park and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to decide the price.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Finsbury Park property is 51 Lorne Road in November 2009. The price Payable as decided by the tribunal for the freehold reversion was £27,000. The valuation follows the order of the County Court made on 3 April 2008 granting a vesting order. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 71 years.

My cousin is buying a ground floor flat in Finsbury Park. He was given a quote by the property lawyer recommended by the selling agents and it came to £1245 . It was 9 years ago since I sold and purchased a house and it cost was £600. Have costs really gone up that much?

What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for instance Finsbury Park searches, land registry fees, etc)
