Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kingsbridge

It is a dozen years since I acquired my property in Kingsbridge. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I can't track down the title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Kingsbridge relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

A colleague advised me that if I am purchasing in Kingsbridge I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is occasionally included in the estimate for your Kingsbridge conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Kingsbridge around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Kingsbridge Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Kingsbridge.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Kingsbridge registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not always primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

For instance, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements.

I have miscalculated my finances and am a couple of thousand pounds short a 10% deposit on my flat purchase in Kingsbridge , but I am keen proceed. What can I do?

One option is to try and agree a lower deposit. Most sellers will agree to a smaller deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last minute
