When will exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Colnbrook and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Colnbrook you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the law practices we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Colnbrook)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Colnbrook building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Colnbrook conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Your lawyer has to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Lloyds are being problematic. The Colnbrook solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Lloyds are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Lloyds have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Lloyds may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
