Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shinfield and Arborfield

We are purchasing a new build duplex in Shinfield and Arborfield and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange and I have no desire to delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Shinfield and Arborfield so that I can pop in to their offices if necessary.

Most approved lawyers for mortgage companies conduct all of the work through the post, internet or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in England or Wales. That being said you can see if you have the option of going to the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if needed.

My wife and I have a semi-detached Georgian house in Shinfield and Arborfield. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Shinfield and Arborfield and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

How does conveyancing in Shinfield and Arborfield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Shinfield and Arborfield contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Shinfield and Arborfield tend to purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Shinfield and Arborfield or who has acted in the same development.
