Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oakdale

At long last a mortgage offer from NatWest for the refinancing of my 2 room maisonette is coming by the end of next week. Are you able to propose a cheap conveyancing law firm in Oakdale?

The sellers of the property we are hoping to buy are using a conveyancing firm in Oakdale who has insisted on a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This kind of contract is not the norm in Oakdale, conveyancers will often sway clients away from them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Secondly, there is no guarantee that just because the owner has entered into an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be tempted to break the contract if they receive a big enough incentive to do so because a wronged party with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equalise the financial upside that your vendor may obtain by breaking the contract, no matter how morally reprehensible that may be.

The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Oakdale. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Barclays going?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Oakdale conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers will apply for a home loan with Barclays and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to move forward with the conveyancing in Oakdale.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Oakdale I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Oakdale for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
