I opted for a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in Preston yesterday. Going through the Terms and Conditions I seewe are on the hook for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Would I be best advised to select a web based conveyancing company who offer no completion no charge conveyancing in Preston?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to offset those cases that do not go ahead. You should be mindful that such deals rarely protect you from disbursements by way of example Preston conveyancing search expenses.
Our conveyancer has identified a a problem with the lease for the property we are buying in Preston. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer has advised that he must ensure that the mortgage company is willing to move forward with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the lender?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the mortgage company are the client. Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your conveyancer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Preston for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Preston conveyancing specialists.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Preston I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Preston in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
We are one month into a freehold purchase having been recommend to conveyancers by the local agent to handle our conveyancing in Preston. I am am extremely disappointed with the level of service. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A lawyer would have to be really poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been sent? In the event that it has you will need to inform them of the new lawyer and have the loan are re-sent.
