You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Immingham or throughout Lincolnshire is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for friction between you and others involved in the transaction.

I have justbeen informed that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Immingham for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

How does conveyancing in Immingham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Immingham contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Immingham usually 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 Immingham or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Immingham I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Immingham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
