Having sold my house in Hornsea last April yet the purchaser is e-mailing me to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?

Following your disposal your solicitor should deliver the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. Where relevant, your solicitor must also evidence that the home loan has been discharged to the buyers solicitors. There are no post completion tasks specific conveyancing in Hornsea.

It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Hornsea concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Hornsea differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hornsea approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Hornsea typically buy the real estate, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hornsea or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Hornsea before retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders will not give a loan on such a home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Hornsea. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Hornsea especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Hornsea.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Hornsea. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Hornsea - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

    The best form of lease arrangement is a share of the freehold. In this scenario the leaseholders benefit from being in charge if their destiny and even though a managing agent is usually retained where it is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent employed by the leaseholders. Is anyone aware of any major works anticipated that will increase the service costs? Are any of leasehold owners in arrears of their service charge liability?
