At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Millwall and am I required to attend the solicitors branch?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Millwall you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the law practices we work with supply a national conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Millwall)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am purchasing a terrace house in Millwall. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these works are prohibited?
Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in Millwall will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain alterations or necessitated the consent of another owner.

Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Millwall. I have a mortgage offer with Kent Reliance. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Millwall I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Millwall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
