The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Aldershot.
I purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Aldershot. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Aldershot and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.
How does conveyancing in Aldershot differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Aldershot contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Aldershot usually acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Aldershot or who has acted in the same development.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Aldershot ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not give a loan on a flying freehold house.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can investigate further via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Aldershot. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
