Some lenders take longer than others. Have Clydesdale completed the valuation? Have you informed Clydesdale as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Bordon. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Bordon property lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Bordon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bordon approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in Bordon typically purchase 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bordon or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Bordon I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Bordon suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Last January I purchased a leasehold flat in Bordon. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Bordon Leasehold Conveyancing - Sample of Questions you should ask Prior to Purchasing

    It would be wise to discover as much as possible concerning the managing agents as they will either make life much simpler or uncomfortable. Being a leasehold owner you will be in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to every day matters like the upkeep of the communal areas. Ask other tenants whether they are happy with their management. On a final note, find out the dates that you are obliged pay the service charge to the managing agents and precisely what it includes. Who are the managing agents? Be sure to find out if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For example some leases prohibit pets being allowed in in a block in Bordon.
