When can the exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Harringay and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Harringay you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the law practices we recommend supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to address the formalities 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 long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Harringay)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Aldermore Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Harringay?
First, 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Harringay I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Harringay suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed apartment in Harringay. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the maintenance contribution as usual because all ground rent and maintenance charges will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
Following months of negotiations we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Harringay. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

My offer on detached house in Harringay has been accepted, the vendor does nevertheless have an associated purchase. The sellers have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and has viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing lawyer in Harringay. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS going with UBS?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Harringay conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to move forward with searches.
