Is it possible for conveyancing in Penn to be concluded inside 3 weeks?

In the event that the seller is applying a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the area as they will have local connections and know-how.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is expelled from the Santander Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Penn?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Please help - my lawyer advises that lack of building regulations insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Penn conveyancing?

The right level of lack of building regulations indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

When it comes to lenders such as Coventry BS, do Penn property lawyers face a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

Am I compelled to take this when acquiring a property in Penn? or Apparently there is historic law that means some homeowners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for repairs to the chancel in proximity to the church.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Penn I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Penn in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
