It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Tadworth. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Tadworth involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
My husband and I are hoping to buy a purpose built apartment in Tadworth with a homeloan from HSBC Bank.We like our Tadworth conveyancing lawyer but HSBC Bank says his firm is not on their "panel". We have to appoint a HSBC Bank panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that HSBC Bank use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan issued to you contains various provisions, a common one being that solicitors needs to be on the HSBC Bank approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for HSBC Bank
Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Tadworth , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Tadworth conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check the registration is concluded.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Tadworth registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any other parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
