We decided to go with a Hedge End based firm for my conveyancing in Hedge End last week. Reviewing the small print it is apparent thatI am liable for fees even if our purchase aborts. Should I ditch them and use an internet lawyer who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Hedge End?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to neutralise those transactions that do not go ahead. Dont forget that these offerings tend not to protect you from expenses by way of example Hedge End conveyancing search costs.
We are about to exchange contracts for a garden flat in Hedge End. We have hit a snag. The mortgage offer with Nottingham Building Society runs out on 19/4/2021 but the sellers are putting forward a completion date of 21/4/2021. Is it possible to prolong the loan expiry date?
The person best placed to deal with your concern is your conveyancer who will determine if he or she is corresponding with the bank, vendor’s conveyancers, estate agents or conceivably all parties given what has happend in your house move to date.
I own a freehold property in Hedge End but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Hedge End and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hedge End but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Hedge End for our house purchase. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage company Nationwide Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?

Taking into account that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on a two bedroom apartment in Hedge End I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thehouse move before appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
