I am in need of a property lawyer. Do I opt for an online conveyancer as opposed to a family Enderby conveyancing lawyer?
On the whole conveyancing solicitors in your area will have good alliances with your local authority, which can help with the Enderby conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will inevitably need. It can only be a plus if they enjoy existing relationships with the Local Land Registry Office your area Enderby, other conveyancers in the neighbourhood and Enderby selling agents.
How does conveyancing in Enderby differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Enderby contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Enderby typically buy 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Enderby or who has acted in the same development.
I have been pointed in your direction by numerous estate agents in Enderby to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to give any financial incentive for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I am attracted to a two apartments in Enderby both have in the region of 50 years remaining on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are plenty of short leases in Enderby. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is advisable to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.

My lawyers in Enderby have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
