Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Wareham is more expensive?
The conveyancing fees on a leasehold premises in Wareham is often higher when contrasted to a freehold residence. This is due to the additional work necessary in dealing with the freeholder and managing agents to collate the information about whether the rent and service charges have been cleared and whether there are any significant expenditure in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the block.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Wareham registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises so registration formalities is not always top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Leasehold conveyancing in Wareham is not unique. Most leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.

If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.

How easy is it to change a solicitor as I need to find a Wareham based conveyancer who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Is it advisable to appoint a new law firm?
If you haven't yet instructed a conveyancer to commence the conveyancing and at this stage simply received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Wareham that you're thinking of instructing.
