My house in Preston Park is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will the conveyancer need to be required to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Preston Park. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Preston Park?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be called to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Preston Park solicitor - who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays 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 Preston Park 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.

Our offer on a detached house in Preston Park has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Preston Park. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Preston Park conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers will apply for a home loan with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with searches.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Preston Park I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Preston Park in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for sale conveyancing in Preston Park. I happened to discover a site which seems to have the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
