We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Shipley conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

Given that you are now exchanged you must instruct a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of urgency as you are facing a pending deadline in which to complete the transaction. Every auction property should have a corresponding auction pack. This will likely include most,if not all of the paperwork that your solicitor will need. If you have purchased leasehold property the auction pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation relating to leasehold premises. You should hand this to the lawyer instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Shipley. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?

Given that your lender is UBS your lawyer must check the formal requirements contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to UBS where a lease does not meet these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Shipley.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Shipley I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Shipley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to visit the offices of the bank conveyancing panel solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Shipley so that I can pop in to their offices if required.

Whereas this was necessary ten years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Shipley.
