We are about to exchange buying a property in Carnforth but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the owner of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement but Aldermore are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

Any solicitor that is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is required to inform Aldermore of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to disclose the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Carnforth.

I am planning to move house in September. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Carnforth. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across this site.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Carnforth. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Carnforth on 3/6/2019, valuation was booked 3 days later, all came back fine. Conveyancer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

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

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Carnforth. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Carnforth

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply a car parking plan. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Carnforth I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Carnforth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension 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 matter.
