I am searching for value for money conveyancer. Should I go for for an online conveyancer rather than a local Leytonstone conveyancing solicitor?
On the whole conveyancing lawyers in your location will enjoy good relationships with your local authority, which can help with the Leytonstone conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will require. It can only help if they enjoy strong relationships with the Local Land Registry Office your area Leytonstone, other property lawyers in the neighbourhood and Leytonstone Estate Agents.
My wife and I are about to complete on the purchase of a house in Leytonstone but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the owner of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Bank of Ireland will not agree to this. Why were they approached?
Your lawyer being on a Bank of Ireland approved list is required to advise Bank of Ireland of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your lawyer to disclose the reduction to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Leytonstone.

How does conveyancing in Leytonstone differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Leytonstone come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Leytonstone tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Leytonstone or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Leytonstone I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Leytonstone suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
