I need some expedited conveyancing in Farnham as I have a deadline to complete inside 2 weeks. Thankfully I do not require a mortgage. Can I escape the need for conveyancing searches to save fees and time?
As you are are a mortgage free purchaser you are at liberty not to have searches conducted although no lawyer would recommend that you don't. Drawing on our experience of conveyancing in Farnham the following are instances of issues that can appear and adversely impact future saleability: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Fees, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...
How does conveyancing in Farnham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Farnham 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 house builders in Farnham 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Farnham or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Farnham I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Farnham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Farnham
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Farnham conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.
