I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Beverley for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Beverley conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Beverley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Beverley contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Beverley 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 used to new build conveyancing in Beverley or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Beverley is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Beverley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Beverley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beverley 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.
