Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crowthorne

We have very pushy vendors who has recommended a preliminary agreement with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (sometimes known as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular amongst Crowthorne conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser should not expect to be issued with an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the owner disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in limited situations, the additional payment of damages.

three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Crowthorne took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 premises 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.

How does conveyancing in Crowthorne differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Crowthorne come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because developers in Crowthorne usually purchase the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Crowthorne or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Crowthorne is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Crowthorne are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Crowthorne you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Crowthorne 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 property.

My mum and dad are experiencing difficulties in finding their Crowthorne land registry title on the website. They have a vague memory back in the 70’s when they purchased the property there were complications with Crowthorne not being identified on some systems.

Almost all properties in Crowthorne should appear. Have you attempted a search with simply the postcode. Ordinarily it will disclose all the premises inside the postcode. Assuming the property is registered it will show up with a title number. If they bought sixty years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The property might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title deeds which may be with your parent’s bank.
