My wife and I are selling our house in Bishopsworth and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Bishopsworth. We have lived in Bishopsworth for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Bishopsworth I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bishopsworth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the property agent advised that the seller will only proceed if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Bishopsworth
It is improbable the vendors are behind this. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Bishopsworth conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.
