I do hope you can help me. My Castleton conveyancer is assuring me that he has toapply for Castleton conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Is my lawyer correct?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Castleton conveyancing searches.

Should my lawyer be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Castleton.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Castleton. Some people will purchase a house in Castleton, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Castleton. The conventional set of property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the owner to determine whether the premises has historically flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser could commence a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate response. The buyer’s conveyancers should also carry out an enviro search. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be carried out.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Castleton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Castleton is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Castleton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Castleton you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Castleton may ascertain 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.
