I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Upton. Almost all the properties have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Upton?
You would be opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in not carrying out Upton conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would seriously advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. If timings and expenses are primary concerns you should discuss with your solicitor about the possibility of search insurance
When does exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Upton and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Upton you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. However, the firms we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure 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 Upton)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would much rather instruct a Upton based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the the likelihood is that allocate you one of their panel conveyancers should you want the "fee-free" incentive. Call the mortgage company to ask if they make available a cash alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Upton.
