The only saving you would achieve is the disbursement for searches.

This question may be naive but I am new to the process as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Upper Walthamstow. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Upper Walthamstow?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Upper Walthamstow bank branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Upper Walthamstow conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the conveyancer is on the lender panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

My offer on a detached house in Upper Walthamstow has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Upper Walthamstow. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Upper Walthamstow conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that may affect a commercial land in Upper Walthamstow?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Upper Walthamstow will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Upper Walthamstow. The report sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Upper Walthamstow.

How does conveyancing in Upper Walthamstow differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Upper Walthamstow contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Upper Walthamstow tend to purchase the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Upper Walthamstow or who has acted in the same development.
