We were just about to exchange contracts for a garden flat in Upney. We encountered a stumbling block. The mortgage offer with Accord Mortgages Ltd expires on 20/1/2020 but the owners are putting forward a completion date of 22/1/2020. Can one extend the mortgage offer?
The person best placed to deal with your question is your lawyer who is in a position to assess if they better off negotiating with the bank, owner’s representatives, estate agents or indeed all parties given what has happend in your conveyancing to date.
The Upney conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my purchase in Upney have suddenly shut down. They were on acting for me because I had to have a firm on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and my preferred Upney lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Upney. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Upney - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
