We instructed a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Raunds last week. Going through the Terms and Conditions I noteI am responsible for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and appoint a web based conveyancing brokerage promising no move no charge conveyancing in Raunds?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to counteract the conveyances that abort. Also remember that these offerings rarely protect you from expenditure for example Raunds conveyancing search charges.

Would the conveyancing lawyers identified through your search tool handle auction conveyancing in Raunds?

There are a few auction practitioners we can put you in touch with those conducting auction conveyancing. Raunds is just one of our areas of in which our lawyers are based.

Can you point me to a directory of Coventry BS panel solicitors in Raunds on the Building Society Association’s Website?

No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public on the web. If you are looking for a Raunds conveyancing practitioner on the Coventry BS please use our tool.

I am purchasing a property in Raunds. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. RBS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS your lawyer must follow the formal instructions outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for RBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to RBS where a lease does not comply with these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Raunds.

Will commercial conveyancing searches disclose proposed roadworks that may impact a commercial estate in Raunds?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Raunds will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers expend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Raunds. The report provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Raunds.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Raunds it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately could cause delays to Raunds commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not carried out for domestic conveyancing in Raunds.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Raunds I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Raunds in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
