What do conveyancing solicitors do?

The conveyancer will handle all the legal elements of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer. The solicitor will raise questions for the seller, order property searches, review the contract of sale, and complete any post-sale actions, such as HMLR registration.

In addition to standard searches, North London conveyancing solicitors would also undertake checks for leasehold complexities, including short and defective leases.

Are you buying with a mortgage?

As part of the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the bank arranging your mortgage.

If your lawyer is not on your chosen lender's panel, your purchase could take significantly longer to complete and cost you more in the process.

Over 100 banks and building societies have approved our chosen panel lawyers, so we can help you complete your North London transaction without delay.

Conservation areas

When you buy a property in a conservation area, your conveyancer will need to check for covenants and restrictions, which could include parking issues, and noise level restrictions. Conservation areas in North London and across the London local authority include Bank, Guildhall, Laurence Pountney Hill and Newgate Street.

Shared Ownership Conveyancing

When you buy a share in a property from a not-for-profit housing association, you will need shared ownership conveyancing. Shared ownership conveyancing is more complex than buying a home outright.

If you need conveyancing to purchase a shared ownership property, or for staircasing, our panel solicitors can assist you with every aspect of the purchase process.

New Build Conveyancing

The legal work for purchasing a new build in North London is more complicated than buying an existing property.

A property lawyer in North London must be able to deal with things like dealing with fast exchange timeframes, negotiating new build contracts and registering ownership with warranty providers, including NHBC Buildmark, Advantage and Foundation.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in North London?

The legal work for a leasehold flat or house is a great deal more difficult compared to a freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in North London must carry out additional tasks, for example getting the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to details of historical insurance claims.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold house or flat, It is strongly advised that the seller instruct a solicitor as early as possible.
