Lexsure has not been advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.

I acquired my home on 3 January and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Badminton advises it will be formalised in less than a month. Are titles in Badminton particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Badminton registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration occurs once the buyer is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Badminton is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Badminton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Badminton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Badminton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My father has suggested that I instruct his conveyancers in Badminton. Do I follow his guidance?

Due to complete next month on a leasehold property in Badminton. Conveyancing lawyers assured me that they will have a report out to me on Monday. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

You should receive guidance as what happens when the lease expires, and aware of the importance of not letting the lease term falling below eighty years You should know whether the lease allows you to add or improve anything in the premises- you must know whether it relates to all alterations or just structural alteration, and whether licences for alterations is required Your solicitors should enable you to have an understanding of the insurance obligations

I bought a garden flat in Badminton, conveyancing having been completed in 2012. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Badminton with a long lease are worth £186,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2076

With 52 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

I yesterday found out that one of the directors of the firm acting on the purchase conveyancing in Badminton is related to the owners that we are purchasing from. Is this permitted?

On the basis that no conflict arises this is permitted. Where you are needing mortgage finance then the lender may have a say as many lenders have specific requirements concerning this. For example for Bradford & Bingley as of 9/6/2024, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Your firm may only act if a separate fee earner or partner within the firm acts for us.
