I am buying a house for cash in Buckhurst Hill. I have lived for the previous 15 years in Buckhurst Hill. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Buckhurst Hill conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it may be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. On occasion premises with day to day issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Buckhurst Hill will be able to give you some sensible guidance here.

It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Buckhurst Hill. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't find my deeds. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they could still be with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Buckhurst Hill relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am the single recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Buckhurst Hill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. Most mortgage companies would take a practical view as this provision is chiefly there to capture subsales or the flipping of property.

How can we tell if a Buckhurst Hill conveyancing solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel is any good?

Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a flat in Buckhurst Hill has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

Your estate agent will want to be advised as to your lawyer's details (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Coventry BS or your broker and complete any appropriate forms. Coventry BS will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or owners to book a time for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days to receive the mortgage offer. Coventry BS will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Buckhurst Hill.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Buckhurst Hill I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Buckhurst Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated 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 request that they commence the lease extension formalities 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 solicitor regarding this matter.
