Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Arnside

When will exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Arnside and do I need to attend the conveyancers branch?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Arnside you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a nationwide conveyancing service and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract simply enables the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Arnside)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Arnside completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 premises 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.

How does conveyancing in Arnside differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Arnside come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Arnside usually buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Arnside or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Arnside I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Arnside for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I am looking to sell my house. My previous solicitors has retired. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Arnside if that affects matters.

Being a tenant I am liable for a service charge for my flat in Arnside. Due to redundancy and personal issues I fell behind with remittance. The managing agents agreed a clearance plan but there is still in the region of £2000 outstanding as of today.

I am under pressure to sell and I am concerned this may hold me back if I have to pay off the arrears now. Do I have to settle before - is this viable?

The conveyancing practitioner undertaking your Arnside sale will hopefully be in a position to negotiate with the management company, and agree with them whether or not they would accept settlement out of the completion monies. Here is indicative of why it is advisable to choose a property lawyer in Arnside as they may well have an established relationship with the management company.
