My wife and I are selling our property in Fenstanton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A high street Fenstanton conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Fenstanton. Having lived in Fenstanton for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)

How does conveyancing in Fenstanton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Fenstanton contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Fenstanton typically purchase 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 property lawyers 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 Fenstanton or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Fenstanton I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fenstanton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

How straightforward is it to use your search facility to get a fee calculation from a conveyancing practitioner in Fenstanton on the approved list for my mortgage?

Me and my wife accepted an offer on a Fenstanton bungalow left to us some years ago in 2009. I have over a decades worth of conveyancing know-how and, although retired, intend to undertake the conveyancing. The purchaser's solicitor has informed me that their bank will not allow you to do your own conveyancing insisting the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.

Mortgage requirements to conveyancing practitioners from all CML members specify that If the vendor is not legally represented the borrower's lawyers should check whether the bank needs to be notified so that a decision can be made as to whether they are prepared to proceed.
