At long last a loan agreement from Santander for the remortgage of my 4 bedroom maisonette is coming any day now. Can you suggest a cheap conveyancing solicitor in Newent?

You are on the wrong site if you are seeking a cheap conveyancing in Newent. Our aim is to provide excellent value conveyancing but our intention is not to work with the cheapest lawyers. Avoid the trap of appointing organisations enticing you with ninety nine pound conveyancing in Newent.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Newent?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I am attracted to a couple of apartments in Newent which have about forty five years left on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

A lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease shortens the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
