We are looking to buy a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Brentford who is on the Nottingham solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nottingham . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Brentford.
I have a renovated Georgian house in Brentford. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking The Royal Bank of Scotland to clarify?
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 Brentford and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
How does conveyancing in Brentford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Brentford come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Brentford usually 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 property lawyers 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 Brentford or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Brentford is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Brentford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Brentford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brentford 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.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial offices in Brentford and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to affords protection to business tenants, giving them the dueness to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Brentford is one of our hundreds of areas of the UK in which the firms we work with have offices
I am one month into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the selling agent to do our conveyancing in Brentford. We are not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?
