How up to date is your database of Cilcain solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? Do Nottingham send you an updated list?
Cilcain conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nottingham directly.

How does conveyancing in Cilcain differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Cilcain approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Cilcain usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Cilcain or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Cilcain I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cilcain in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we use their preferred lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Cilcain
It is improbable the sellers are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Cilcain conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will give their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.
