Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hook

My son-in-law is purchasing a new build apartment in Hook with a mortgage from Aldermore. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Are the Hook conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Nottingham?

Hook conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nottingham directly.

Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are the main cause of obstruction in Hook house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Hook.

I own a terraced Georgian house in Hook. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Chelsea Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Hook and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Hook is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Hook are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hook you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hook may decide 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.

I am looking into buying my first house which is in Hook and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Hook. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Hook area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Hook. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found
