I require expedited conveyancing in Nailsworth as I am faced with a deadline to exchange contracts within 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save fees and time?
As you are not obtaining a home loan you have the choice not to do searches although no law firm would advise that you don't.

I completed on my home on 13 March and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Nailsworth advises it would be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Nailsworth uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Nailsworth registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
What are the common deficiencies that you come across in leases for Nailsworth properties?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Nailsworth. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Yorkshire Building Society, Barnsley Building Society, and Clydesdale all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to pull out.
I own a garden flat in Nailsworth, conveyancing formalities finalised August 2011. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable flats in Nailsworth with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2084
With only 63 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £16,200 and £18,600 as well as professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
I am purchasing a flat mortgage free. My lawyer has been given with two separate proof of photographic ID, bank statement, multiple utility bills. Now he needs a copy from a probate lawyer stating that the funds are in order and that it has come from inheritance and not via illegitimate means.
In today’s world you will not be able to complete any Nailsworth conveyancing transaction without first providing evidence of your identity to your lawyers. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a utility bill. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of ID it must be both the paper part and photo card part, one is not acceptable without the other. Proof of your source of funds is required under Money Laundering Regulations.
