It is is a decade since I purchased my house in Wisbech. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I can't locate the title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they could stored with the solicitor who oversaw the purchase.

How does conveyancing in Wisbech differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Wisbech approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Wisbech tend to buy 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Wisbech or who has acted in the same development.

I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed flat in Wisbech.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you pay the invoice as usual given that all ground rent and service invoices will be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
