My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Barlborough. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Chelsea Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should review 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Barlborough and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
How does conveyancing in Barlborough differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Barlborough approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Barlborough tend to 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Barlborough or who has acted in the same development.
