Me and my brother have a semi-detached Victorian house in Langstone. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Yorkshire Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Yorkshire Building Society to clarify?

You should 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Langstone and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

I have been pointed in your direction by a few estate agents in Langstone to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers rather than another?

We don’t make any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Langstone

We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Langstone conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £200,000 garden flat in Langstone on Friday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £384 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Langstone?

Langstone conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally necessitates the buyer’s conveyancer submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions the majority will be content to do so. They may invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it exceeds £800. The administration charge levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. In reality you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to sell the property.

Langstone Leasehold Conveyancing - Sample of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    Its a good idea to find out as much as you can concerning the company managing the block as they can either make your living at the property much simpler or uncomfortable. As the owner of a leasehold property you will be in the clutches of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to every day matters like the cleanliness of the common parts. Don't be afraid to ask prospective neighbours if they are happy with them. On a final note, be sure you understand the dates that the service charges are due to the appropriate party and specifically what it includes. How is the lease structured? Be sure to discover if there are any onerous restrictions in the lease. By way of example it is reasonably common in Langstone leases that pets are not permitted in in a block in Langstone. If you like the flatin Langstone but your cat is not allowed to move with you then you have a very difficult compromise.
