Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Deddington

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Deddington. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't find my title deeds. Will this cause complications?

You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Deddington relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

In looking at mumsnet.com for a recommended solicitor in Deddington, most advise that I should instruct a CQS assured solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's major banks. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Deddington is one of the many areas of the UK where there are Accredited lawyers.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Deddington completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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 asset 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 issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Deddington is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Deddington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Deddington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Deddington may decide 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 husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only move forward if we use the agent's recommended solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Deddington

It is improbable the vendors are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Deddington conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.

I am attracted to a couple of maisonettes in Deddington which have approximately fifty years remaining on the lease term. should I be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in Deddington. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

I own a garden flat in Deddington, conveyancing having been completed in 2006. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Deddington with an extended lease are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2087

With just 63 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £16,200 and £18,600 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
