When does exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Holywell and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?

My partner and I are selling our property in Holywell and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Holywell conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Holywell. We have lived in Holywell for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
I bought my flat on 4 July and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Holywell expressed confidence that it should be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Holywell particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Holywell registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Holywell I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Holywell in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term 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 property for at least 2 years you can 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
