I'm spending time viewing houses in Cowley and I am about to put in an offer. Is it advisable to have my conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with Principality.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Cowley off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Kent Reliance. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Cowley building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Cowley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?

The property lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Cowley. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Santander. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Cowley and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

How does conveyancing in Cowley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Cowley contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because new home sellers in Cowley usually acquire 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 conveyancers 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 Cowley or who has acted in the same development.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Cowley. I have chance upon a web site which looks to be the ideal offering If there is a chance to get all formalities done via web that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
