Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ripley

We're in Ripley, First time buyers buying with a mortgage (lender is Lloyds , and our lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancing practitioner should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I have justdiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Ripley for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Ripley conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Ripley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Ripley approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Ripley usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ripley or who has acted in the same development.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Ripley. Before I get started I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Ripley - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
