When will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Brentwood and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Brentwood you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Brentwood)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
We wanted to use a property lawyer in Brentwood for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our bank Virgin Money won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Mortgage Companies ordinarily restrict either the category or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such criteria being that a law practice must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have limited the number of solicitor practices they allow to represent them. You should note that Virgin Money have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Virgin Money Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there remains differing opinions concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicate that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Brentwood only perform one or two conveyances a year.
I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Brentwood I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brentwood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
