Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Great Harwood

It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Great Harwood. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they could be archived with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Great Harwood relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.

My lawyer in Great Harwood has never been on on the Coventry Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Coventry Building Society panel?

Your options are as follows:

  1. Complete the purchase with your existing Great Harwood lawyers but Coventry Building Society will need to use a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will result in additional total conveyancing fees and result in frustration.
  2. Find a new solicitor to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check they are Coventry Building Society approved.
  3. Persuade your Coventry Building Society based solicitor to attempt to join the Coventry Building Society panel

I own a terraced Victorian house in Great Harwood. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Coventry Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should read 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 Great Harwood and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.

How does conveyancing in Great Harwood differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Great Harwood contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because house builders in Great Harwood tend to 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 used to new build conveyancing in Great Harwood or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Great Harwood is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Great Harwood are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Great Harwood you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Great Harwood may ascertain 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 premises.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Great Harwood. I've land on a site which appears to be the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via email that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
