I have justdiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Liphook for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Liphook conveyancing specialists.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Liphook I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Liphook suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Is it best to use a Liphook conveyancing practitioner based in the location that I am hoping to buy? An old friend can handle the legal work however his firm is located over three hundred miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Liphook conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to execute paperwork, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Liphook know how is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Liphook conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.
