When will exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Syston and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Syston you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the law practices we recommend supply a nationwide conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Syston)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Your property lawyer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Syston will occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain changes or need the consent of another owner. Many additions need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Kent Reliance are being problematic. The Syston solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Kent Reliance are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Syston. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would as all rents and service payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
