We are a couple about to exchange contracts for a semi detached house in Holmrook. We encountered a snag. The loan offer with Chelsea Building Society runs out on 8/4/2019 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 10/4/2019. Can one prolong the mortgage expiry date?
The best person to address this concern is your conveyancer who will calculate whether they should be discussing with the lender, owner’s representatives, property agents or indeed all parties based on the circumstances your transaction as of today.
At what point will exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Holmrook and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Holmrook you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend provide a national conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract simply enables the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Holmrook)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I completed on my apartment on 11 February and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Holmrook said it will be registered in less than a month. Are transfers in Holmrook particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Holmrook registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration occurs once the new owner is living at the premises so 'speed' is not typically top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
We have recently had an offer accepted on our 1st house in Holmrook, and need to get solicitors lined up. We have made use of the various rating tools and the results are from all over the the UK. Is it advisable to have a Holmrook property lawyer local to your potential property? We are fine to do everything electronically, but I assume at some point we may be required to physically go into the conveyancing practitioner's office to sign contracts?
The conveyancer does not need to be in Holmrook, but opting for local means that you have the option to go in if you need to, for instance, if a signature is needed urgently. In addition, a Holmrook solicitor is likely to be familiar with local agents and (if the vendor has instructed a local property lawyer) with them, which should help smooth the process.
