My previous lawyer has quoted just over a thousand pound for freehold conveyancing in Ormesby. I’m selling a Georgian property for £225,000. This seems over the top. Is it in excess of the average fee for conveyancing in Ormesby?

Our solicitor has identified a defect with the lease for the property we are buying in Ormesby. The other side have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our property lawyer says that he must ensure that the bank is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the lender are the client. Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your property lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

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 simple, no chain conveyancing. Ormesby is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Ormesby are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ormesby you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ormesby 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 property.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Ormesby. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as usual because all rents and service invoices should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
