Buying a house in Harrow

Consistently ranked among the country’s happiest and most desirable cities, it’s no surprise Brighton is incredibly popular with potential homebuyers. Located on England’s sunny south coast, together with neighbouring Hove, the urban area has population of around 290,000 and offers great access to the capital. That’s just part of the reason you’ll find a really strong property market in the city. At My Home Move Conveyancing, we’ve been tailoring our expert knowledge of markets like Brighton’s since 2001, enabling us to give all our clients a professional and efficient conveyancing service.

The local area

Harrow is a large suburban area at the northwestern edge of the capital. Once a scattering of quaint villages, the region has since been absorbed by a growing London, but the area still retains plenty of its charm today. Nowhere is this more evident than in Harrow-on-the-Hill; designated a conservation area for its listed Georgian architecture. Despite its proximity to the bright lights of London, Harrow retains it’s a central commercial area of its own, where you’ll find plenty of brunch-busting cafés and boutique shops to keep you busy locally.

As with much of Greater London, Harrow is well served by public transport. Four London Underground lines have stations in the borough – Piccadilly, Metropolitan, Bakerloo and Jubilee – the latter two of which terminate here. The London Overground also runs through central Harrow, stopping at Harrow & Wealdstone railway station, where direct train services into the city operate. For those looking to be as close to central Harrow as possible, the Metropolitan line, Bakerloo line, London Overground and railway are your options. Road users will be happy to know that the M1 cuts just north east of Harrow and provides fast access to the M25, while the nearest airport is Heathrow Airport.

The region is renowned for its education credentials, what with it being the home of the famous Harrow School. Other options in the area include the ‘oustanding’ St Anslem’s Catholic School at primary level and Whitmore High School at secondary level. For higher education, the University of Westminster have a campus in the area.

What's involved

Once you have your offer accepted, it’s time to get the ball rolling on legally transferring the ownership to you. Here’s how we do things at My Home Move Conveyancing.

First, your estate agents will send us a copy of the Memorandum of sale, which provides the details of the property, the amount offered and the name of the sellers and buyers and their conveyancers. You will be asked to complete your details and provide to us your instructions along with primary ID such as a passport or driving licence and proof of residence in the form of a bank statement/utility bill.

If you are selling a house, you will need a Conveyancer to act for you – that’s where we come in!

You will be asked by us to complete your details and provide your instructions along with primary ID such as a passport or driving licence and proof of residence in the form of a bank statement/utility bill. You will also be asked to fill in a Property Information form including some specific details about the property, its boundaries, any alterations to the property etc. If you have any additional paperwork such as planning permissions or notices, then these will be required by us to send with the contract papers. We will also ask you to complete a Fixtures, Fittings and Contents form to say what you will be taking and leaving behind. If the property is leasehold, you will be asked for information about who you pay ground rent and services charges to…

After we have received your instructions to act we will check the legal issues and title to your property to ensure it offers a satisfactory security for your new lender, as this is the essence of a mortgage.

We will also check the amounts outstanding on any current mortgage registered on the property as these will have to be repaid at completion. The amounts will be confirmed with you.

Usually, we will not carry out Local, Drainage or Mining (if appropriate) searches as we will put in place an insurance which will protect your lender. This is less expensive for you and quicker. Some lenders still require that searches are made and will not rely on insurance. If this is the case the searches will have to be made and the cost will show on the Financial Statement sent to you.

At about the same time that you receive your Mortgage Offer we receive a copy together with the lender’s instructions to act for them. We will consider the Offer to ensure that we do those things required of us as the solicitors and to check what other conditions have to be satisfied.

We will then send you the Mortgage Deed to sign and any other documentation that may be required by your lender. We shall need to have this back from you as soon as possible and certainly by the day before we complete. Otherwise there will be a delay.

You need to check that the Mortgage Offer is acceptable to you. For example, is the mortgage amount and mortgage product correct? Is it the correct method of repayment? Are there any early repayment fees?

We target a completion date for 7 days after we receive our copy of the Mortgage Offer but our being able to complete depends on the terms of the Offer and any peculiarities of your transaction.

If the new mortgage amount is less than the amount we have to pay to your existing lender, we will ask for the difference from you, before the completion date.

Following completion we deal with the registration formalities to ensure the mortgage security is perfected for your lender and any deeds will then be sent to your lender for safe-keeping.

Note – If your property is leasehold, we also:

Request your landlord to confirm that all ground rent, service charges and insurance premiums (if applicable) have been paid to date and that there is no known breach of the lease.

Have to approve the wording of the lease.

Have to serve on the landlord a notice of discharge of your existing mortgage and a notice that a new mortgage has been given to your new lender.
