Have purchased a a detached house in Frinton On Sea , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Frinton On Sea conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my ownership is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Frinton On Sea registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any third parties.

How does conveyancing in Frinton On Sea differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Frinton On Sea contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Frinton On Sea tend to buy the land, 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 conveyancers 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 Frinton On Sea or who has acted in the same development.

I was recommended by three or four local estate agents in Frinton On Sea to get a quote from a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to make any commission for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I own a leasehold flat in Frinton On Sea. Conveyancing and TSB mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing solicitor in Frinton On Sea who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to incur the fees of a Frinton On Sea conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Frinton On Sea Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Queries before Purchasing

    Many Frinton On Sea leasehold flats will incur a service bill for maintenance of the block invoiced by the management company. Where you purchase the apartment you will have to pay this liability, normally in instalments accross the year. This could be anything from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large communal grounds. In all probability there will be a ground rent to be met annual, normally this is not a significant figure, say around £25-£75 but you need to check it because on occasion it could be surprisingly expensive. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their service charge payments? The prefered form of lease structure is a share of the freehold. In this situation the leaseholders have control and although a managing agent is frequently retained where the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent is directed by the tenants.

Our estate agent has suggested using their conveyancing practitioner for the conveyancing in Frinton On Sea - Surely it’s easier to just use them?

You need to establish if the selling agent is recommending a solicitor or introducing to a solicitor. There are plenty of Frinton On Sea estate agents who recommend two or three Frinton On Sea conveyancing firms and get nothing from it.
