We were just about to exchange contracts for a garden flat in Sipson. We have hit a problem. The mortgage offer with Nationwide Building Society runs out on 31/3/2023 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 4/4/2023. Is it possible to prolong the loan expiry date?
The best person to address this question is your solicitors who will hopefully calculate whether he or she is better off negotiating with the mortgage broker, vendor’s solicitors, estate agents or indeed all three given the circumstances your conveyancing as of today.
We are selling our home in Sipson and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Sipson lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Sipson. Having lived in Sipson for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I used Action Conveyancing several years past for my conveyancing in Sipson. Now, I need my documents however the law firm has closed. What do I do?

How does conveyancing in Sipson differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Sipson approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Sipson tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Sipson or who has acted in the same development.

Looking forward to exchange soon on a ground floor flat in Sipson. Conveyancing lawyers inform me that they report fully on Monday. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?
The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Sipson should include some of the following:
An explanation as to the provision in the lease to pay service charges - in respect of the block, and the wider rights a leaseholder enjoys You should be sent a copy of the lease Whether the landlord has obligations to ensure rights of quiet enjoyment over your premises and do you know what it means in practice? Does the lease prohibit wood flooring? Specifying your rights in respect of the communal areas in the building.For instance, does the lease permit a right of way over an accessway or hallways?
Following months of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Sipson. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Sipson conveyancing firm who can help.
