I am in need of a property lawyer. Should I go for for a nationwide conveyancer or a high street South West London conveyancing solicitor?
Existing third party relationships are another important factor to consider when appointing conveyancing lawyers. South West London law firms often have connections with mortgage brokers and agents, local authorities, valuers and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Possessing vast insight into the local area is also a plus .
Our grandson is buying a newly built flat in South West London with a home loan from Clydesdale. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Clydesdale conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in South West London is more expensive?
South West London leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

We are downsizing from our property in South West London and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street South West London conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in South West London. We have lived in South West London for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
