Do conveyancers request money up-front for my conveyancing in Bedmond?
If you are buying a property in Bedmond your lawyer will request that you place them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Generally this is requested to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. If any down payment is as part of the total price then this should be required shortly prior to exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is needed should be transferred a couple of days prior to the day of completion.
I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Bedmond. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. many lenders would take a sensible view as this provision is chiefly there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.

We had selected conveyancers located in Bedmond on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me an additional sum for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Coventry BS but by your Bedmond conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.
How does conveyancing in Bedmond differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Bedmond contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Bedmond tend to acquire 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 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 Bedmond or who has acted in the same development.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Bedmond. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Bedmond - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
Bedmond Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Sample of Queries before buying
How much is the ground rent and service charge? In the main the cost for major works tend not to be built into the service charges, albeit that a few managing agents in Bedmond obliged leasehold owners to pay into a reserve fund and this is used to offset against larger repairs or maintenance. What restrictions are contained in the Bedmond Lease?
Two months into purchasing a house in Bedmond. Conveyancing solicitor has phoned to say the title is "Leasehold". Should this impact the salability of the house?
Bedmond conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The crucial consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.
At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a significant impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the lender. The length of lease and ground rent will be specified in the lease provided to your property lawyer.
