Me and my partner are due to exchange on the purchase of a house in Wragby but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract however Nottingham are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
Your solicitor being on a Nottingham approved list is obliged to advise Nottingham of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to disclose the reduction to Nottingham then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nottingham and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Wragby.
How does conveyancing in Wragby differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Wragby approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Wragby usually acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 Wragby or who has acted in the same development.

Back In 2004, I bought a leasehold house in Wragby. Conveyancing and The Mortgage Works mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing solicitor in Wragby who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?
First make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to instruct a Wragby conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Wragby - Examples of Questions you should consider before Purchasing
Where a Wragby lease has less than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the value of the property. Check with your lender that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth discovering what this will be. For most Wragbylease extensions you will need to own the property for two years before you are legally able to exercise a lease extension. Can you inform me if there are any major works on the horizon that will add a premium to the service fees? How many years remain on the lease?
My fiance and I are hoping to buy a three bedroom apartmentin Wragby with a mortgage from a bank. We would like to retain our solicitor in Wragby however our bank inform us now that he's not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our lender panel firms or stay with our Wragby solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The bank mortgage issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the bank's conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had open panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Wragby : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
