When will exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Thames View and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?

Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Thames View you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend provide a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the firm to officially exchange at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Thames View)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Thames View. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Thames View conveyancing firm to help?
