This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Wargrave. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Wargrave?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Wargrave. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
I am buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Wargrave. Our aim is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will legal investigations on the property include checks to see if these alterations are allowed?
Your conveyancer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Wargrave will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain alterations or need the permission of another owner. Some extensions require local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Wargrave. My mortgage broker suggested a property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £150. Not long after, the property lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nationwide panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
How does conveyancing in Wargrave differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Wargrave contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Wargrave typically 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Wargrave or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Wargrave I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wargrave suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
Your search tool is useful but there are many lawyers listed near Wargrave being on the lender conveyancing panel. It would be a lot more helpful if you could recommend a specific firm on the mortgage company approved panel?

For example you may require a local firm with Wargrave knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
