My grandmother passed away last year and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in North End. The house had a relatively small loan left on it of around £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Nationwide, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

Given you intend to re-mortgage then Nationwide will require that you use a conveyancer on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Nationwide mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. North End is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in North End are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in North End you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in North End may determine 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 residence.

Should I be suspicious about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are recommending a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street North End conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often referrals from family and friends can be very helpful. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all recommend lawyers to choose. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that some lenders specify a panel list of lawyers you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.

Should I instruct a North End conveyancing solicitor based in the location that I am buying? An old friend can execute the legal formalities but her office is 400kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local North End conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were happy that must trump using an unknown North End conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.

My partner and I may need to rent out our North End ground floor flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a North End conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Your lease dictates relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in North End do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the tenancy agreement.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a North End conveyancing firm to represent me?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to calculate the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a North End premises is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case was in relation to 13 flats. The unexpired term was 76 years.
