When will exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Chaddesden and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Chaddesden you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the firms we recommend supply a national conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Chaddesden)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

A friend advised me that in buying a property in Chaddesden there could be various restrictions limiting what one can do in terms of external alterations to the property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Chaddesden which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Chaddesden should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

My wife and I purchasing a detached bungalow in Chaddesden. We would like to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property include checks to determine if these works are prohibited?

Your solicitor will review the deeds as conveyancing in Chaddesden can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of changes or need the permission of a 3rd party. Many works need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Chaddesden. My mortgage broker suggested a solicitor. I paid an advanced payment of £150. A few days later, the solicitor contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Lloyds panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

The deeds to our home can not be found. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Chaddesden 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be held by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and obtain up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.

I am purchasing a new build house in Chaddesden with a mortgage from Birmingham Midshires. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Chaddesden I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Chaddesden suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I'm converting the mortgage on my current property to a BTL mortgage with Platform Home Loans Ltd and intend to use the remaining equity towards further house. The location we are talking about is Chaddesden. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the two deals?

Do use our comparison tool on this site to be sure that the conveyancers are on the appropriate lender panels. On the basis that they are your solicitor should be able to tie up the two deals but you should have a chat with you solicitor and specify your desired outcome and needs.
