Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oldland

My partner and I are purchasing our first home. Our conveyancing practitioner has calledto see if we wish to take out extra conveyancing searches. Frankly we are clueless as to what's appropriate for conveyancing in Oldland

The scope of Oldland conveyancing searches should be dictated entirely on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your familiarity of the area and risks, your overall approach to risk. What is important is that you properly appreciate what information the searches could give you. Then you can make a decision if you personally think you need that information. Where you are unclear, ask the solicitor to guide you.

The Oldland conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Oldland have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I had to have a firm on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel and my family Oldland lawyer was not. I paid them funds on account. What do I do now?

If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.

Me and my brother have a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Oldland. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Oldland and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

I am buying my first flat in Oldland with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it could impact my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Oldland is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Oldland are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Oldland you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Oldland 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 residence.

I was pointed in your direction by a number of property agents in Oldland to locate a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your services over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to offer any financial incentive for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
