Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hertford

We were just about to exchange contracts for a garden flat in Hertford. We encountered a stumbling block. Our loan offer with Barclays Direct runs out on 15/7/2024 but the owners are suggesting a completion date of 17/7/2024. Can one extend the loan expiry date?

The person best placed to address this concern is your conveyancer who should determine whether he or she is should be discussing with the bank, seller’s representatives, estate agents or indeed all three based on what has gone on in your conveyancing as of today.

At what point does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Hertford and am I required to attend the solicitors office?

Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Hertford you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply a national conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the firm to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hertford)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Hertford. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Hertford?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

When it comes to conveyancing in Hertford getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

Our sealed bid on a property in Hertford has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Hertford. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with HSBC?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Hertford conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Concerning the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with HSBC and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Hertford.

I have justfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Hertford for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Hertford conveyancing specialists.

Is it best to use a Hertford conveyancing lawyer based in the area that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can conduct the conveyancing however they are based 300kilometers away.

They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job.
