I just acquired a house at auction in Tadley. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?
Given that you have now to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to find a conveyancing lawyer quickly as you are facing a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the purchase. All auction property will have an associated legal pack. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. In the case of leasehold premises the conveyancing pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You must give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Tadley bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Tadley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Your property lawyer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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.
Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Tadley solicitor - who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Skipton will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Skipton will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Tadley surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Tadley 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
Assuming you have a registered title the details of your ownership will be held by HMLR under a Title Number.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Tadley I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Tadley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
