Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the RBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Clitheroe?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
Will my conveyancer be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Clitheroe.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Clitheroe. There are those who acquire a property in Clitheroe, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their solicitors which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Clitheroe. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to discover whether the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim stemming from an inaccurate reply. The purchaser’s solicitors may also carry out an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be made.
How does conveyancing in Clitheroe differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Clitheroe come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Clitheroe typically purchase 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 Clitheroe or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Clitheroe I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Clitheroe in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

It is highly unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Clitheroe conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will earn the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.
