My solicitor has uncovered a defect with the lease for the apartment we are purchasing in Datchet and Langley. The other side have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our solicitor has advised that he must ensure that the lender is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the lender are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.
At what point will exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Datchet and Langley and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Datchet and Langley you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the sale agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the firm to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Datchet and Langley)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
How does conveyancing in Datchet and Langley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Datchet and Langley come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Datchet and Langley tend to purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Datchet and Langley or who has acted in the same development.

I only have Fifty years unexpired on my flat in Datchet and Langley. I now wish to extend my lease but my landlord is can not be found. What should I do?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to find the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent may be helpful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Datchet and Langley.
