Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Easton. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?
Having for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you must retain a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are facing a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the transaction. Every auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction pack. This will likely include most,if not all of the documents that your lawyer will need. If you have purchased leasehold premises the conveyancing papers may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork relating to a leasehold property. You must hand this to the conveyancer instructed by you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that your finances are organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
The mortgage over my property is with Yorkshire BS for my property in Easton. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Yorkshire BS?
Yorkshire BS must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Yorkshire BS will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Yorkshire BS directly. You need not do this via a Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel lawyer.

How does conveyancing in Easton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Easton come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Easton tend to acquire 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 Easton or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Easton I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Easton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
