We were just about to sign contracts for a semi detached house in Heathfield. We encountered a problem. Our loan offer with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society runs out on 24/1/2024 but the owners are insisting on a completion date of 26/1/2024. Is it possible to prolong the loan expiry date?
The best person to deal with your question is your conveyancer who will calculate whether he or she is corresponding with the mortgage company, seller’s lawyers, selling agents or indeed all three based on the circumstances your house move as of today.
We are looking to buy a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Heathfield who is on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

I am downsizing from our house in Heathfield and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Heathfield conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Heathfield. Having lived in Heathfield for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
four months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Heathfield took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Heathfield. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Heathfield
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
