Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goodmayes

My Goodmayes lawyer has identified an inconsistency when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action legitimate?

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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 you.

Having sold my house in Goodmayes last January but my buyer keeps e-mailing every few hours complaining that her conveyancer is waiting to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?

Following your sale your conveyancer is obliged to deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. If applicable, your conveyancer should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the buyers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities just for conveyancing in Goodmayes.

3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Goodmayes concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Goodmayes is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Goodmayes are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Goodmayes you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Goodmayes may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

A conveyancing firm dealt with my conveyancing in Goodmayes half a dozen years ago having archived my title documents but has since been shut down – how do I get hold of these?

Title deeds, as such, no longer exist as the majority of properties in Goodmayes are recorded electronically at Land Registry. If you need to show ownership or are disposing of or refinancing your lawyer can obtain up to date copies of the register from the Land Registry in any case.

If you feel there may be other documents or you have any other queries please e-mail your request with details of the transaction and documents you need to filerequest@clc-uk.org. The CLC will let you know what information they have and any additional information they may need before they are in a position to identify and send the documents to you. Following an intervention it may take some time for the CLC to access archived files and documents, but your request will be actioned with reasonable haste.
