Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Woodford Green

The mortgage offer from Santander for the remortgage of my 3 bedroom flat is due imminently. Could you suggest a low cost conveyancing solicitor in Woodford Green?

You have arrived at the wrong site to search for the lowest fares for conveyancing solicitors in Woodford Green. Our aim is to provide affordable conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Do not be swayed by companies teasing you with £100 conveyancing in Woodford Green. In your best case scenario, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will end up with what you pay for and at worst you will end up spending a lot in additional fees and still not end up with the service expected.

Our son-in-law is about to exchange on a newly built flat in Woodford Green with a mortgage from Skipton. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Skipton conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. 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 Skipton conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

We expect to receive a AIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Woodford Green solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Woodford Green solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Woodford Green solicitor on the RBS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your RBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your RBS mortgage has been paid off.

Bank of Ireland have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a property in Woodford Green has been agreed to, what happens next?

Your estate agent will need to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (make sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Bank of Ireland or your broker and finish off any relevant documentation. Bank of Ireland will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or vendor to arrange a slot for the valuation to take place. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight to get a mortgage offer. Bank of Ireland will send the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Woodford Green.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Woodford Green completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Woodford Green before retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not grant a loan on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Woodford Green. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Woodford Green to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
