I am buying at auction and would like arrange fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up our move?

A.

Key to a fast completion is to employing a communicative solicitor. There are, in addition, a number of tasks you can also do to accelerate the legal work, including, if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can, completing all forms as soon as possible and pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible.

Q.

Where do I uncover additional info on the Paddington and Paddington conservation areas?

A.

Conservation area concerns, like the upkeep of public spaces, non sympathetic doors or neglected buildings are presided over by the local authority (Westminster). English Heritage, a government body, keep details in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the trend.

Our mortgage lender will be Barclays Bank, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for purchasers if a second preferred solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act on behalf of many UK mortgage lenders.

Part of the legal due diligence when buying a property involves carrying out searches of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and the required permission for developments. .
