At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Wollaton and do I need to be at the solicitors branch?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Wollaton you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the law practices we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Wollaton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Me and my brother have a terraced Victorian property in Wollaton. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Aldermore. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wollaton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
I'm buying my first flat in Wollaton with a loan from Bank of Scotland. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it would jeopardize my loan with Bank of Scotland. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Wollaton. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Wollaton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
