I can see plenty of information on this site regarding conveyancing in Hurst Green but can you isolate your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Hurst Green

Do not opt for the lowest Hurst Green conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I'm the single recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Hurst Green. The Hurst Green property was put into my name in June. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be impacted by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this obligation is principally there to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

My partner and I have arranged the release of further monies on our mortgage from Principality as we intend to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Hurst Green. Do we need to choose a nearby Hurst Green solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Principality don't usually require a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Principality list.

My wife and I own a renovated Edwardian house in Hurst Green. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to 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 Hurst Green and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Hurst Green is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Hurst Green are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Hurst Green you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hurst Green may determine 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 property.

Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that many banks operate an approved list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
