We are purchasing a Andover property with Darlington Building Society - what will I need to be aware of?
Until recently, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For property purchasers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for the vast majority of lenders in the UK.

Why is it silly to buy a leasehold with less than 99 years to run?
In large part, if a leasehold drops below 90 years, it’s because mortgage companies will not be willing to lend money to purchase the leasehold. They will almost certainly have a stipulation on the length of the leasehold as part of their criteria for lending.
Most buyers are very aware of this and the trend is for an insistence of the sellers to provide an extension back up to the 99-year or 125-year thresholds before considering its purchase. Otherwise, even if you can finance it, eventually you’ll have to consider the legal cost of extending the lease yourself.
What’s the difference between residential and commercial conveyancing?
In essence, there is very little difference between the tasks needed for residential conveyancing against commercial conveyancing. The real difference comes in the type of property and the purpose for which it is intended to be used.
The majority of residential transactions are freehold, whereas commercial transactions are almost exclusively leasehold, and commercial property conveyancing searches will tend to be more expensive because the structure and land will occupy a greater space on average than that for residential property.
What makes conveyancing work to buy in Andover to be so delayed? Should we be worried?
Conveyancing will occasionally take more time even where there is no chain. Some delays are regrettably out of the solicitors' hands. We endeavour to diminish their impact wherever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward. Delays can include slow solicitors acting for the other side.
We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, can we aim for fast conveyancing?
As is often reported, faster conveyancing is the key to instruct a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:
- Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
- Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
- Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?
