Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Cambridgeshire. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?

Now that you have exchanged you will need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner soon as you are faced with a tight a fixed date to complete the transaction. All auction property will have a bespoke auction set of papers. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Cambridgeshire conveyancing lawyers are chosen. How long does it take for UBS to issue the offer to the property lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS completed the survey? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Cambridgeshire is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My colleague suggested that where I am buying in Cambridgeshire I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

This is a search is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Cambridgeshire conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Cambridgeshire around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Cambridgeshire Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Cambridgeshire.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Cambridgeshire I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cambridgeshire for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

My husband and I are 14 days into a residential purchase having been directed to solicitors by the selling agent to execute conveyancing in Cambridgeshire. I am not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A conveyancer would have to be very bad to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you must inform them of the new contact details and get the offer are issued to the new lawyers. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and complications. So that should be your starting point.
