Should my conveyancer be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Marylebone.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Marylebone. Plenty of people will purchase a house in Marylebone, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Marylebone. The standard completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to discover whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading response. A buyer’s solicitors will also carry out an environmental search. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be conducted.
I have todaydiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Marylebone for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest way to see if the property 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 Marylebone conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Marylebone is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Marylebone are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Marylebone you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Marylebone 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 premises.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the high street agent to carry out the conveyancing in Marylebone. I am am starting to be disappointed with the quality of service. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
A conveyancer would have to be very poor in order to consider replacing them. Has the mortgage offer been sent? If so you must make them aware of the replacement lawyer and ensure the loan are re-issued. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid escalating fees and complications. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Marylebone. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Marylebone - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can a leaseholder make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Marylebone conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Marylebone conveyancing firm who can help.
