Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hazlemere

I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to leave my rented property in Hazlemere by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in 5 weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?

It is unwise to serve notice on a rental until your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not previously done so, update to your lawyer and urge them to they apply pressure on the owners lawyers, try to a target completion date that all parties will look to achieve

My apartment in Hazlemere is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does my property lawyer have to be required to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Hazlemere 10 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be held by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.

How does conveyancing in Hazlemere differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hazlemere come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Hazlemere tend to buy the real estate, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hazlemere or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Hazlemere ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders tend not grant a loan on this type of house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can check with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Hazlemere. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Hazlemere to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
