I decided to go with a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Northwich today. Looking through the official terms of business I notewe are on the hook for charges even if the sale aborts. Would I be best advised to select a web based conveyancing company advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Northwich?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise those transactions that abort. Also remember that such deals rarely protect you from expenses by way of example Northwich conveyancing search costs.
I am approaching an exchange on a property in Northwich and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancing practitioner needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
The conveyancer is obliged to clarify with mortgage company to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Northwich I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Northwich for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
I am downsizing from my home. My former lawyers closed down. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Northwich if that makes a difference.
