My fiancee and I are at the point of looking at houses in Stoke Poges and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Yorkshire BS.
It would be wise to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
I own a renovated Edwardian property in Stoke Poges. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to assess 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 Stoke Poges and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage 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 completed the work.
My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct their recommended conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Stoke Poges
It is improbable the sellers are behind this. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Stoke Poges conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
I am just shy of a 10% deposit on my flat purchase in Stoke Poges , but I still want to exchange. What can I do?
You can accept a lesser deposit. Many property owners will agree to a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last second
