As someone not used to conveyancing in Repton what’s the number one tip you can impart for the ownership transfer in Repton
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Repton and elsewhere in Derbyshire is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, selling agent and on occasion the mortgage company. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Repton is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
On occasion a potential adversary will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Repton. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Repton - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
