My wife and I are purchasing a house in Basildon. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to deposit our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Basildon. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Basildon?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Basildon. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Basildon. The Basildon property was put into my name in April. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this clause primarily exists to capture subsales or the quick reselling of property.

How does conveyancing in Basildon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Basildon approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Basildon 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 property lawyers 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 Basildon or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Basildon I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Basildon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities 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 matter.

What advice can you give us when it comes to appointing a Basildon conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

If you are instructing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Basildon conveyancing practice) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you make enquires with several firms including non Basildon conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be helpful:

    If they are not ALEP accredited then why not? What are the charges for lease extension work?
