My partner and I have recently acquired a property in Rushden. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Rushden?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Rushden. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner fills in a form called a SPIF. answers turns out to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Rushden.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Rushden conveyancing solicitors are selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Aldermore?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Aldermore done the survey? Have you informed Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Rushden. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £175. Soon after, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nottingham panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

The estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the solicitors are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Nationwide or your financial adviser and complete any relevant forms. Nationwide will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to arrange an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Rushden.
Have purchased a a detached house in Rushden , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Rushden conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Rushden registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two apartments in Rushden both have about fifty years unexpired on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are plenty of short leases in Rushden. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease shortens the value of the lease reduces and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We recommend you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.
