When does exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Buckden and do I need to attend the lawyers office?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Buckden you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a nationwide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the property agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Buckden)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am thinking of mortgaging my property in Buckden, does my lawyer have to be on the Skipton Conveyancing panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel, but Skipton would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
The deeds to my house can not be found. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Buckden 4 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Buckden is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Buckden are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Buckden you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Buckden may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

My partner and I may need to sub-let our Buckden 1st floor flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Buckden conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A lease governs the relationship between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Buckden do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the sublease.
