Bodmin conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company such as Xpress Legal The local search is essential in every Bodmin conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any unpleasant once you have moved into your property.

My wife and I have a terraced Victorian property in Bodmin. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read 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 Bodmin and other locations in 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 buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
How does conveyancing in Bodmin differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Bodmin contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Bodmin typically buy the land, 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 Bodmin or who has acted in the same development.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Bodmin prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks tend not grant a loan on a flying freehold home.

Should you wish to call us we can look into this further via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Bodmin. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Bodmin to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
