Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian property in Hillingdon. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hillingdon and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
How does conveyancing in Hillingdon differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Hillingdon come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Hillingdon tend to buy 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 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 Hillingdon or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Hillingdon before instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not give a loan on such a property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Hillingdon. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Hillingdon especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Hillingdon.
