At what point does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Wraysbury and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Wraysbury you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the firms we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Wraysbury)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I'm the only recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Wraysbury. The Wraysbury property was put into my name in August. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this provision chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
I am purchasing a property in Wraysbury. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Clydesdale be concerned?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Wraysbury.
Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Wraysbury solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Wraysbury postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Wraysbury.

How does conveyancing in Wraysbury differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Wraysbury approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Wraysbury tend to acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 Wraysbury or who has acted in the same development.
