I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my let out flat in Crabtree by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Can I complete in 4 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to serve notice on a rental until you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, contact to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the owners solicitors, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will work to achieve
We see that you have a post code search directory identifying firms on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a commission if I appoint them for our own conveyancing in Crabtree?

I am downsizing from our house in Crabtree and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Crabtree. Having lived in Crabtree for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Crabtree I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Crabtree for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
I'm remortgaging my primary house to a buy to let mortgage with Virgin Money and intend to use the remaining equity towards a second property. The neighborhood we are interested in is Crabtree. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and link together the two deals?
Do use our comparison tool on this page to be sure that the conveyancers are on the appropriate lender panels. Having checked that they are your lawyer should be able to connect the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and communicate your expectations and requirements.
