When can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Valley and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Valley you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a national conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Valley)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Valley. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Valley ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may not issue a mortgage on such a home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you call us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Valley. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Valley especially if they are familiar with such properties in Valley.
Am I best advised to instruct a Valley conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal formalities but they are based 400kilometers drive away.
The benefit of a high street Valley conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Valley know how is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and in the main were happy that must trump using an unknown Valley conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Valley. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Valley - 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.
I acquired a 2 bed flat in Valley, conveyancing was carried out June 2012. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Valley with an extended lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2081
With just 60 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as costs.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
I see that you have a post code search directory identifying law firms on the lender conveyancing panel. Do Valley conveyancing companies pay you a referral fee if I instruct them for my own conveyancing?
