Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Potton

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Potton. What is the rationale as to why all Potton lawyers are not on all lender panels?

Even though it may seem unfair for lenders to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or lawyer’s perspective, the other side of the coin is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and regard it essential to defend themselves from illegal activities.

When it comes to conveyancing in Potton seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your transaction.

Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Potton solicitor - who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Potton surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Potton I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Potton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the offer 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 could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
