Why would I appoint a Wednesfield conveyancing company given that web based conveyancers are cheap by comparison?
By all means make sure that you compare conveyancing costs in Wednesfield and you should seek a competitive quote but don’t become consumed with hunting for the cheapest Wednesfield conveyancer. Locating the right conveyancer can be the difference between a smooth and a frustrating move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from an experienced lawyer. Emails can't be as helpful as a phone call and can never replicate a one to one meeting. The firms that we work with will allocate you a qualified and experienced conveyancing solicitor that will deal with your conveyancing from from the outset to completion, giving the sort of continuity that you are unlikely to received from an web based conveyancer. Our lawyers will keep you updated as to progress and keep you informed. Should it ever be necessary to call the firm you will be sure who you need to speak to and we'll ensure you are kept fully informed.
When does exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Wednesfield and am I required to attend the solicitors branch?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Wednesfield you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Wednesfield)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

My uncle has suggested that I appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Wednesfield. Do I follow his advice?
No doubt the ideal way to find a conveyancing lawyer is to get guidance from friends or family who have actually used the firm that you are contemplating using.
I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agent office in Wednesfield where we have witnessed a few leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Wednesfield conveyancing solicitors. Please can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I invested in buying a 2 bed flat in Wednesfield, conveyancing having been completed 6 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in Wednesfield with a long lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2090
With only 71 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
