When can the exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Whimple and am I required to be at the solicitors office?

In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. A buyer’s lawyers will also carry out an enviro search. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Whimple I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Whimple for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
