Exmouth conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for example Searches UK The local search plays an important role in many a Exmouth conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any nasty surprises after you move into your new home.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Exmouth registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Last August I purchased a leasehold house in Exmouth. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
