Recently asked questions about conveyancing in New Brighton

Due to move into my new home in New Brighton next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook instructions. These requirements are not unique to conveyancing in New Brighton.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in New Brighton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street New Brighton lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in New Brighton. We have lived in New Brighton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

My wife and I purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian property in New Brighton. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Alliance & Leicester . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should review 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 New Brighton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. New Brighton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in New Brighton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside New Brighton you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 New Brighton may ascertain 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.

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in New Brighton and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act affords a safeguard to commercial lessees, giving them the right to make a request to court for a new lease and remain in occupation at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act for protection and handle your commercial conveyancing in New Brighton

I am hoping to buy a repression property in New Brighton and the vendor require completion inside a month. Do property lawyers meet that timeframe? Am I best advised to select a local New Brighton firm or an online conveyancer that advertises to complete quickly?

Attend your New Brighton shopping parade. Pop in to two or three solicitor’s offices and ask to talk to a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Discuss your needs and get assurances on speed. Select the one that comes across as most efficient. You need to select a property lawyer on the panel of conveyancers acceptable to your lender.
