I am buying a semi-detached house in Yarmouth. Can I do my own conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Yarmouth you will have to appoint a solicitor on your lender's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Yarmouth.
The deeds to our house are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Yarmouth 5 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know exactly where to locate all the appropriate documentation so you may purchase or sell your property without a hitch. If copies can’t be located, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on the property.

Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Yarmouth I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Yarmouth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
