At what point will exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Hanslope and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?
If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Hanslope you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email.

A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hanslope)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Hanslope. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking The Royal Bank of Scotland to clarify?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hanslope and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Hanslope with a loan from Clydesdale. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it will impact my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am attracted to a couple of flats in Hanslope both have about forty five years unexpired on the leases. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Hanslope. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We advise that you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
I bought a 1st floor flat in Hanslope, conveyancing formalities finalised January 1996. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension?
