I am under pressure from the executor of a property in Haslemere to exchange within four weeks. What can I do to speed up matters?
First, If the seller is applying pressure for your conveyancing it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local contacts and knowledge. It is possible that they would have handled previoushomes in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Haslemere conveyancing lawyer. Second, double check that the conveyancing firm is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is believed that just under twenty per cent of Haslemere conveyancing deals are frustrated or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s lawyer was not on their banks member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the conveyancing being held up by an average of three weeks. It is estimated that this issue impacts in the region of 100,000 home moves annually. Many Haslemere conveyancing firms can not represent certain lenders so do check at the outset.
I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for stalling in Haslemere conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Haslemere.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Haslemere I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Haslemere suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Haslemere. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is registered - and most are in Haslemere - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Is anyone aware of any major works in the near future that will add a premium to the maintenance costs? Where a Haslemere lease has fewer than eighty years it will impact the salability of the flat. Check with your lender that they are happy with remaining years on the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. For most Haslemerelease extensions you will be required to have owned the premises for two years before you are eligible to carry out a lease extension. It would be sensible to investigate if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For instance it is fairly common in Haslemere leases that pets are not allowed in in a block in Haslemere.
