The sellers of the house we are hoping to buy are using a conveyancing practitioner in Thatcham who has suggested a lock out agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements recommended for Thatcham conveyancing transactions?

Lock out agreements are contracts binding a home owner and prospective acquirer granting the buyer the sole right to purchase the property for a limited period of time. Essentially, a lock out agreement is a contract specifying that you will receive a contract at a later time which is the contract for the actual sale. It is generally utilised for buyer confidence though in many situations, the owner may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are various pros and cons to having them but you need to check with your solicitor but beware that it may result in costing you extra in conveyancing charges. For these reasons these contracts are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Thatcham.

How does conveyancing in Thatcham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Thatcham contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Thatcham tend to buy 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 Thatcham or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Thatcham I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Thatcham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

I'm converting the mortgage on my current property to a buy to let loan with Bank of Ireland and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on further house. The neighborhood we are interested in is Thatcham. Will your conveyancers be able to act for both sets of banks and link together the transactions?

Make use of our search tool on this page to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both lenders. Assuming that they are the lawyer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you solicitor and specify your desired outcome and needs.

Why do I have to send my conveyancing practitioner with a list of items of identification before I can commence with selling or purchasing a property in Thatcham?

Thatcham lawyers are obliged by the Law Society, Solicitors Regulation Authority, HM Land Registry and current AML legislation to record that the have verified the identity of their clients. It will also be a requirement of your mortgage offer. In addition they have to complete various forms, particularly those relating to SDLT and need to have details such as your full names, NI number and date of birth.
