Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goffs Oak

I can't travel far from Goffs Oak. What is the rationale as to why all Goffs Oak lawyers are not on all bank panels?

Banks ordinarily restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their panel. Frequent examples of such criteria being that a practice is required to have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the nature of firm, some banks such as HSBC made a decision to limit the number of firms they permit to act for them. You should note that mortgage companies have no accountability for the quality of service given by any Goffs Oak property lawyer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the culling of solicitor panels in the last decade even though there are contrary points of view concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics via HMLR reveal that thousands of law practices only carry out one or two conveyances annually. Those vindicating conveyancing panel cuts question why conveyancing firms should have claim to be listed on a bank panel when clearly conveyancing is not their speciality?

Me and my brother own a terraced Victorian house in Goffs Oak. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Leeds Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Goffs Oak and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Goffs Oak is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Goffs Oak are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Goffs Oak you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently.

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.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Goffs Oak?

Conveyancing - in Goffs Oak or anywhere in England and Wales - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are buying and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for negotiating the buying price down or asking the seller to fix the defects before you move in.
