At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Penistone and do I need to be at the lawyers branch?
If you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Penistone you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the law practices we recommend supply a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Penistone)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Penistone I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Penistone suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I’m about to sell my basement flat in Penistone. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently had a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?
It best that you discharge the service charge as you normally would given that all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
