Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Langford

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Langford costs more?

The conveyancing charges on a leasehold property in Langford is often more expensive as compared to a freehold property. This is due to the supplemental time necessary in dealing with the landlord and managing agents to collate the information concerning whether the rent and maintenance charges have been paid and whether there are any major works due in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

five months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Langford concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 asset 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 Langford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Langford contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Langford usually purchase 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Langford or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Langford is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Langford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Langford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Langford 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 premises.

I have been recommended by a number of property agents in Langford to locate a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to offer your site over another?

We don’t offer any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
