Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Hampton Wick who acted for me 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house move (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. It looks as though am now being charged double. Better the devil I know or do I try and find a cheaper online property lawyer?
The estimate does seem a tad overpriced. If you shop around you might shave off some of the expense by say £125. On the other hand, if you were pleased with the legal work the firm offered you couldcome to regret choosing an a cheaper lawyer. If is important to ensure the conveyancer can act for Platform Home Loans Ltd.

I am due to complete buying a house in Hampton Wick but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the owner in the sum of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Yorkshire BS are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Your conveyancing practitioner being on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is required to inform Yorkshire BS of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to notify the price change to Yorkshire BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Yorkshire BS and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Hampton Wick.
When will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Hampton Wick and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Hampton Wick you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email.

Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hampton Wick)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two apartments in Hampton Wick which have in the region of forty five years remaining on the leases. Will this present a problem?
There are no two ways about it. A leasehold apartment in Hampton Wick is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the salability of the premises. The majority of purchasers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a property with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Hampton Wick conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Hampton Wick agreed to, the vendor does however have an associated purchase. The current proprietors have offered on a property, although it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing lawyer in Hampton Wick. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Aldermore going with Aldermore?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Hampton Wick conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers will apply for a home loan with Aldermore and pay for the survey and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in Hampton Wick.
