It is 10 years ago since I purchased my home in East Sheen. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to locate the title documents. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers.

East Sheen conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for example Searches UK The local search is essential in every East Sheen conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any unpleasant surprises after you move into your property.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. East Sheen is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in East Sheen are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside East Sheen you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Sheen 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.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent advised that the owners will only go ahead if we use their preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in East Sheen

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your own,trusted East Sheen conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.

When it comes to my conveyancing in East Sheen should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee

(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some East Sheen conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the conveyancer's time in submitting the funds this way.
