I am expecting a OIP from Coventry BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Harrold solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Harrold solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.

Our offer on a property in Harrold has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Harrold. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money going?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Harrold conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancer is on the Virgin Money approved list. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to proceed with searches.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Harrold?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Harrold. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Harrold I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 51 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 short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Taking into account that I am about to spend £400,000 on 3 bedroom house in Harrold I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding theconveyancing in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be doing your conveyancing in Harrold.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a matter number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Harrold should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
