I am purchasing a leasehold flat in Hilton. My Conveyancer is not on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Can I still use my Hilton conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?

- Complete the purchase with your existing Hilton conveyancer but your lender will need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner from their approved panel. This will result in additional cost and likely frustration.
- Choose a fresh conveyancer to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your conveyancing practitioner to seek to join the mortgage company panel

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Hilton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Hilton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Hilton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently.

Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hilton 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.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Hilton
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Hilton conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will give the estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing figures set by head office.
Should one remove a deceased person's details from the title register for a property in Hilton?
Where a Hilton property is jointly owned and one of the owners passes away, their name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds. You are not required to amend the title as when it comes to a sale your lawyer would simply be required to supply proof why the co owner is not a party to the contract, such as a grant of probate.
With the aim of making the sale conveyancing simpler for the sale of the property you can arrange to have the deceased name removed from the title entries by submitting an application to the land registry with evidence of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
