Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Norbiton

I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Halifax. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Norbiton. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

The Halifax conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Norbiton? Is this really warranted?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Terms of Engagement that you are required to sign will no doubt reaffirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked.

I bought my apartment on 14 April and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Norbiton expressed confidence that it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Norbiton uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Norbiton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any 3rd parties. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the property therefore post completion formalities is not typically an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
