At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Ombersley and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Ombersley you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we recommend supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ombersley)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Ombersley property lawyer on the Lloyds panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Lloyds mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Lloyds mortgage from the register. Lloyds, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Lloyds has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Lloyds has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Ombersley I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ombersley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may 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 lawyer about this matter.
