Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chorley

I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Chorley. The vast majority the properties have already been sold. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Chorley?

If you getting a mortgage, your lender will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Chorley conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your lawyer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Chorley.

My wife and I have a semi-detached Edwardian property in Chorley. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Santander. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Santander to clarify?

You should 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Chorley and other locations in 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 situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
