Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ascot

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Ascot and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?

Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Ascot you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to address the formalities 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 a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ascot)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home buying as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Ascot. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Ascot?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Skipton. I assume I don't need a Ascot conveyancing practitioner on the Skipton panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Skipton mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Skipton mortgage from the register. Skipton, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Skipton has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Skipton has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Skipton mortgage has been paid off.

Principality have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Ascot has been accepted, now what?

The property agent will want to be informed of your conveyancer's details (be sure the solicitors are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Principality or the broker and complete any outstanding documentation. Principality will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Principality will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Ascot.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Ascot 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?

These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know precisely where to find all the relevant paperwork so you may buy or dispose of your house 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 future claims on your premises.
