It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Olney. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be with your lender or they may stored with the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Olney involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

My husband and I wish to acquire a newbuild apartment in Olney with a homeloan from Barnsley Building Society.We use our Olney conveyancing solicitor but Barnsley Building Society informed us he's not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Barnsley Building Society panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Barnsley Building Society approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barnsley Building Society

I moved into my home on 8 May and my personal details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Olney advises it will be dealt with inside ten days. Are properties in Olney particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Olney is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Olney before appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may refuse to issue a loan on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Olney. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Olney especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Olney.
