Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goodrich

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is suspended from the Clydesdale Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Goodrich?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

How does conveyancing in Goodrich differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Goodrich contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Goodrich 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 conveyancers 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 Goodrich or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Goodrich I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Goodrich in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing 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 existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Why is it not possible to complete our conveyancing in Goodrich on May bank holiday?

This is due to the fact that on completion the funds will pass between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s conveyancing practitioner and currently this can only take place on a business day. So you can't complete on a weekend either.
