This question may be naive but I am new to the home buying as FTB of a garden flat in Denham. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Denham?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Denham. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £200. A couple of days later, the conveyancer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging 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.
Intending to buy a house in Denham. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Denham conveyancing practitioner is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Denham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Denham lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Denham. We have lived in Denham for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
How does conveyancing in Denham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Denham contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Denham tend to buy the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Denham or who has acted in the same development.
I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Denham ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to issue a loan on such a house.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Denham. Before I get started I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Denham - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
