How can we tell if a Kenton conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Kenton seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor handling your transaction.
My partner and I have arranged the release of further funds on our mortgage from Coventry BS as we wish to carry out renovations to our property in Kenton. Do we need to choose a local Kenton solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Coventry BS don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Coventry BS list.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Kenton. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
My wife and I purchased a terraced Georgian house in Kenton. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Nottingham Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. 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 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 Kenton and other areas of 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 mortgage companies. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Kenton is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Kenton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Kenton you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Kenton 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 property.
My aunt completed her conveyancing in Kenton in 2005. She has since got married, widowed and has recently married again. She intends to sell the house next moths. I suspect that she will simply be requested to supply copies of the marriage papers to the solicitor however she is concerned it will frustrate the house move. Should she appoint a lawyer to update the Land Registry information for the house?
You are not required to bring up to date the title for the property on the basis that you have the evidence needed to show how the name change resulted.
The purchaser’s property lawyer will check the land registry details and requisition evidence by way of proof of the change of name for example marriage certificates.
