The housing market in Grassendale is heating up. What can I do to expedite matters?
In a situation where the seller is applying pressure to exchange it is advisable to make sure that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local relationships and intelligence. It is possible that they would have conducted previousproperties in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Grassendale conveyancing solicitor. Second, double check that the conveyancing firm is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is claimed that nearly one in five of Grassendale conveyancing transactions are suspended or jeopardised after discovering a buyer’s lawyer was not on their banks member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal transfer of property being held up by as much as 21 days. It is believed that this issue affects in the region of one hundred thousand home moves annually. Almost all Grassendale conveyancing practices can not act for certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.
I have been told that property searches are a common cause of obstruction in Grassendale house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Grassendale.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Grassendale I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Grassendale for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

How easy is it to change a solicitor as I need to find a Grassendale based conveyancer who is on the bank conveyancing panel. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?
In the event that you have not formally appointed a solicitor to commence the conveyancing and have just received quotes, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Grassendale that you're thinking of instructing.
