My lawyer has discovered a defect with the lease for the apartment we are purchasing in Hampton Wick. The other side have suggested title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our property lawyer has advised that he must check that the mortgage company is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the lender?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your solicitor will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Hampton Wick but how do I know who I should use?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Hampton Wick conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Hampton Wick. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Hampton Wick - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
