My solicitor has identified a a legal deficiency with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Aspley Guise. The seller’s lawyers have suggested title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?
Even though you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the mortgage company are the client. The appropriate lender provisions must be adhered to.
I just bought a house at auction in Aspley Guise. Conveyancing is required. What is next?
Given that you are now exchanged you now have to retain a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of urgency as you will have a tight a fixed date to complete the property. An auction property should have a corresponding legal set of papers. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the auction papers should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You must give this to the lawyer working for you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds organised to complete on the date specified in the contract.

I have a mortgage with Yorkshire BS for my property in Aspley Guise. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Yorkshire BS?
You must advise Yorkshire BS in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Yorkshire BS directly. You need not do this via a Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel lawyer.
My wife and I are selling our home in Aspley Guise and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Aspley Guise lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Aspley Guise. Having lived in Aspley Guise for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Aspley Guise I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Aspley Guise in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
My husband and I are four weeks into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the local agent to perform conveyancing in Aspley Guise. I am am starting to be dissatisfied with the level of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?
A solicitor would have to be very bad in order to consider replacing them. Has the mortgage been issued? If so you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the loan are re-sent. Your conveyancer needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental charges and complications. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.
