I have recentlydiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

How does conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Ashby de la Zouch come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Ashby de la Zouch usually buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch or who has acted in the same development.

Am I right to be concerned about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are recommending a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Ashby de la Zouch conveyancing company?

As is the case with many professional services, often referrals from connections can be very helpful. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all put forward conveyancers to instruct. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Ashby de la Zouch. Conveyancing and HSBC Bank mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing solicitor in Ashby de la Zouch who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Ashby de la Zouch conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
