We went with a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Oughtibridge last week. After carefully reading the fine print I noteI am liable for fees even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing brokerage promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Oughtibridge?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to offset those conveyances that abort. Please beware that such promotions tend not to protect you from expenses e.g. Oughtibridge conveyancing search expenses.
It is 10 years ago since I bought my home in Oughtibridge. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by your mortgage company or they may still be with the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Oughtibridge relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Oughtibridge I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Oughtibridge in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Oughtibridge?
Conveyancing - in Oughtibridge or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are purchasing and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to fix the problems prior to you move in.
