However, the firms we recommend supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return.

At last I have had an offer on a flat in Borrowash accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Borrowash. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Nottingham started?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Borrowash conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Nottingham and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Borrowash.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Borrowash is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Borrowash are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Borrowash you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Borrowash may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Accord Mortgages Ltd, The Mortgage Works, and Platform Home Loans Ltd all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to withdraw.
