Various web forums that I have visited warn that are the primary reason for delay in Colyton conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Colyton.
How does conveyancing in Colyton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Colyton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Colyton usually buy the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Colyton or who has acted in the same development.

I am 18 days into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Colyton. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
A lawyer would need to be very bad in order to consider changing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? If so you need to inform them of the replacement lawyer and have the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the mortgage company panel to avoid supplemental fees and frustration. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Colyton. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Colyton - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I inherited a ground floor flat in Colyton, conveyancing formalities finalised 7 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable flats in Colyton with a long lease are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2075

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
