What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Newbury

It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Newbury conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Newbury on 25/7/2022, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Leeds Building Society and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

A relative suggested that if I am buying in Newbury I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Newbury conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Newbury around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Newbury.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Newbury. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Newbury

    If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Newbury I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Newbury for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Do I cancel the direct debit for my mortgage with Kent Reliance once a completion date for my home sale in Newbury has been agreed?

You are best advised to maintain paying any mortgage payments to Kent Reliance until the mortgage is repaid on completion as part of your Newbury conveyancing.
