I am under pressure from the seller of a property in Wilberfoss to exchange within four weeks. What can I do to expedite matters?
Where the seller is applying a tight deadline to complete we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local connections and intelligence. It is even conceivable that they may have handled otherhomes in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Wilberfoss conveyancing solicitor. In addition, be sure that the conveyancing firm is on the lender panel. It is estimated that 18% of Wilberfoss conveyancing transactions are suspended or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the transaction being held up by an average of three weeks. It is believed that this issue affects in the region of 100,000 home moves annually. Almost all Wilberfoss conveyancing practices can not represent certain lenders so do check as early as possible.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 62 years left on my flat in Wilberfoss. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What should I do?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to find the landlord.
