In a situation where the seller is applying pressure to complete it is advisable to make sure that your solicitor is familiar with the area as they will have local contacts and knowledge.

Is it usual for Virgin Money to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Harrold is approved on their conveyancing panel? Virgin Money have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

How does conveyancing in Harrold differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Harrold contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in Harrold typically purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Harrold or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Harrold I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Harrold suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

Am I better off to go with a Harrold conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can execute the conveyancing however her office is over three hundred kilometers away.

The benefit of a local Harrold conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign documents, hand in your identification documents and pester them if necessary. Having local Harrold know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and the majority were content that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Harrold conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Harrold. Before I get started I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Harrold - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I am the registered owner of a studio flat in Harrold, conveyancing having been completed in 1999. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Harrold with a long lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2088

With only 67 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £10,500 and £12,000 plus legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence.

There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
