I am buying a semi-detached house in Kingsbury. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Kingsbury you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender.

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

As is the case with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all put forward solicitors to appoint. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there might be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to select your own lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the mortgage related work in your home move.
