At what point will exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Goring and am I required to be at the conveyancers office?
If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Goring you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Goring)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a Goring based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel lawyers should you want the "fee-free" offer. Call the lender and check if they allow a cash alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Goring.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Goring is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Goring are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Goring you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Goring may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial premises in Goring and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act affords a safeguard to business tenants, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a new lease and remain in occupation at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act for protection and help with commercial conveyancing in Goring
We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct the agent's recommended solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Goring
We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Goring conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
