How can we know in advance if a Blaby conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Blaby obtaining recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.
Our sealed bid on a house in Blaby has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Blaby. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money going?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Blaby conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your lawyer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Blaby.

I own a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Blaby. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Barclays . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Blaby and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 68 years left on my flat in Blaby. I am keen to get lease extension but my freeholder is can not be found. What should I do?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to find the landlord. For most situations an enquiry agent should be useful to try and locate and prepare a report which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer in relation to proving the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Blaby.
