Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Milton Keynes

I hired a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Milton Keynes recently. Reviewing the official terms of business I notewe are liable for charges even if the movedoes not happen. Should I go with them or select a web based solicitor practice offering no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Milton Keynes?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to offset those cases that fail to complete. Also remember that such arrangements tend not to cover expenditure for example Milton Keynes conveyancing search costs.

We wish to acquire a 2 bedroom flat in Milton Keynes with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works.We like our Milton Keynes conveyancing lawyer but The Mortgage Works advised that she’s not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a The Mortgage Works panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the The Mortgage Works approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Mortgage Works

How does conveyancing in Milton Keynes differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Milton Keynes come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Milton Keynes usually purchase the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Milton Keynes or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Milton Keynes I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Milton Keynes for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
