Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mottingham

It is 10 years ago since I bought my home in Mottingham. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be retained by the mortgage company or they could still be with the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Mottingham relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Mottingham?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Mottingham. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Mottingham before retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks will not issue a mortgage on such a home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Mottingham.
