Me and my brother purchased a renovated Georgian property in Park Royal. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
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 Park Royal and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
How does conveyancing in Park Royal differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Park Royal come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because house builders in Park Royal typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Park Royal or who has acted in the same development.
