I decided to go with a local firm for our conveyancing in Barton Upon Humber yesterday. Going through the Ts and Cs I noteI am on the hook for costs even if the dealdoes not proceed. Should I go with them or instruct an internet conveyancing company offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Barton Upon Humber?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to cover the conveyances that fail to complete.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Barton Upon Humber. I have a mortgage agreed with Nationwide. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Barton Upon Humber bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Barton Upon Humber conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Provided that the lawyer is on the bank approved list, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

How does conveyancing in Barton Upon Humber differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Barton Upon Humber approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Barton Upon Humber usually acquire 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 conveyancers 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 Barton Upon Humber or who has acted in the same development.
