I am purchasing a house without a mortgage in Chalfont St Giles. I have lived for the previous 15 years in Chalfont St Giles. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

We expect to receive a AIP from UBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any Chalfont St Giles solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Chalfont St Giles and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Chalfont St Giles conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Chalfont St Giles. We have lived in Chalfont St Giles for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

About to purchase a new build apartment in Chalfont St Giles. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Chalfont St Giles

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
