Can conveyancing in Kings Heath to be completed inside 10 days?
In the event that you are under a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local connections and knowledge. It is possible that they may have handled previousproperties in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Kings Heath conveyancing lawyer. Second, double check that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is understood that just under twenty per cent of Kings Heath conveyancing deals are held up or derailed after discovering a purchaser’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. This can often result in the transaction being held up by almost three weeks. It is believed that this issue affects approximately 100,000 home sales every year. Most Kings Heath conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check at the outset.
five months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Kings Heath completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 asset 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.

Am I right to be concerned about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a national conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Kings Heath conveyancing practice?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often suggestions from connections can be most helpful. Yet there are many people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may suggest lawyers to instruct. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that many mortgage providers operate an approved list of lawyers you must use for the mortgage related work in your home move.
I am employed by a reputable estate agency in Kings Heath where we see a few flat sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received contradictory information from local Kings Heath conveyancing solicitors. Could you clarify whether the seller of a flat can commence the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
