Will conveyancers ask for money on account for my conveyancing in Aylesbury?
If you are buying a property in Aylesbury your solicitor will ask you place them with funds to cover the search fees. Normally this is asked for to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is payable against the sale price then this should be asked for shortly ahead of contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.
How does conveyancing in Aylesbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Aylesbury come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Aylesbury typically buy the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Aylesbury or who has acted in the same development.

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to track down the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent may be useful to try and locate and to produce an expert document which can be used as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Aylesbury.
