Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bedford Hill

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Bedford Hill. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Bedford Hill involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Bedford Hill. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Bedford Hill?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

We expect to receive a AIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Bedford Hill solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Bedford Hill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being difficult. The Bedford Hill solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
