I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years built) in Copse Hill. Almost all the properties have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Copse Hill?

You would be putting yourself at risk in refusing to carrying out Copse Hill conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line.

At what point will exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Copse Hill and do I need to attend the lawyers branch?

Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Copse Hill you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the law practices we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Copse Hill)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Copse Hill for our house purchase. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage lenders HSBC Bank won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

Various online forums that I have visited warn that are the main reason for stalling in Copse Hill conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Copse Hill.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Copse Hill I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Copse Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities 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 matter.
