I am under pressure from the executor of a property in Bow Street to complete within four weeks. What can be done to expedite the legal process?
Where the seller is applying time constraints to complete it is highly recommended that your solicitor is familiar with the area as they will make use of local relationships and knowledge. It is even conceivable that they could have transacted otherhomes in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Bow Street conveyancing firm. In addition, double check that the lawyer is on the member panel. It is understood that just under twenty per cent of Bow Street conveyancing transactions are suspended or derailed after discovering a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal process being frustrated by almost 21 days. It is believed that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home moves every year. Most Bow Street conveyancing firms can not act for certain lenders so do check at the outset.
Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Bow Street is more expensive?
In short, leasehold conveyancing in Bow Street and elsewhere usually requires extra work compared to freehold transactions. This includes lease investigation, corresponding with the landlord about serving appropriate notices, obtaining current service charge and management information, obtaining the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first entered into.
