At what point does exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Taplow and am I required to be at the solicitors office?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Taplow you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Taplow)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Taplow. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Back In 2009, I bought a leasehold flat in Taplow. Conveyancing and Halifax mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Taplow who acted for me is not around. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to instruct a Taplow conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
