The property market in Lake is heating up. What can I do to speed up matters?
In a situation where you are under a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local relationships and know-how. It is even conceivable that they may have handled previoushouses in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Lake conveyancing firm. Second, be sure that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is said that 18% of Lake conveyancing transactions are frustrated or derailed after discovering a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. This can often result in the legal transfer of property being delayed by almost 21 days. It is understood that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home moves annually. Almost all Lake conveyancing practices can not act for certain lenders so do check as early as possible.
We note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a referral fee if I retain them for our own conveyancing in Lake?

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Lake 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?
You no longer need to have the physical official documentation to establish that you own the land or property, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
I'm buying my first flat in Lake with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the extras as it could put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Lake I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Lake suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
