One will need to appoint a conveyancer to deal with the legal work required when you require a loan to buy your home. The conveyancing practitioner will conduct all the essential legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One could appoint a Hornsea conveyancing practitioner of your choice. However, if the conveyancing practitioner selected is not a member of the lender approved list further fees will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Conveyancing panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not in the past applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

I own a semi-detached Victorian property in Hornsea. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should 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 Hornsea and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Hornsea I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hornsea suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
