Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may be archived with the conveyancers who acted in the purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Patcham involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Patcham is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

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.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Patcham. I have discover a web site which appears to be the perfect answer If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via email that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my ground floor apartment in Patcham. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently received a yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I inherited a split level flat in Patcham, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension?
