We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent informed us that the seller will only move forward if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Winchelsea
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your preferred Winchelsea conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by HQ.
Back In 2009, I bought a leasehold house in Winchelsea. Conveyancing and Coventry Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing practitioner in Winchelsea who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Winchelsea conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations.

I am seeking to buy a repossessed house in Winchelsea and the vendor would like to complete within a week. Can a conveyancer complete in this timeframe? Would it be better to select a local Winchelsea firm or an online company that professes to complete quickly?
Visit your Winchelsea high street. Pop in to two or three companies and ask to talk to a conveyancing solicitor for an estimate. Explain your situation and try and obtain a commitment on speed. Select the one that comes across as most genuine. You need to select a solicitor on the panel of lawyers approved by your mortgage company.
