My property lawyer in Highnam is not listed on the Leeds Building Society Approved Panel. Can I still continue with my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Leeds Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your existing Highnam solicitors but Leeds Building Society will need to retain a conveyancer on their panel. This will result in additional overall legal fees and result in delays.
- Find a new practitioner to to deal with the conveyancing, obviously checking they are Leeds Building Society approved.
- Try to convince your Leeds Building Society solicitor to attempt to join the Leeds Building Society panel
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Highnam 10 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
Gone are the days when you need to hold title deeds to establish that you own the land or property, as the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Highnam is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Highnam are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Highnam 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 Highnam 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 residence.
