At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Redland and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Redland you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to officially exchange at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Redland)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Nottingham Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Redland?
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.
My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Redland. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to determine if these alterations are allowed?
Your property lawyer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Redland can occasionally identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain alterations or require the permission of a 3rd party. Certain additions call for local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Redland bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Redland conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I am purchasing a new build house in Redland with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent told me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
