Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Edgware?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Edgware your lawyer will request that you put them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is as part of the purchase price then this should be needed shortly in advance of exchange of contracts. Any further balance that is needed will be payable a few days ahead of the completion date.
I am considering applying for a Yorkshire BS mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Edgware with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire BS ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Yorkshire BS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
We are downsizing from our house in Edgware and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Edgware. We have lived in Edgware for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of 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 illness)
I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Edgware I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Edgware in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
