How does conveyancing in Pimlico differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Pimlico approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because developers in Pimlico tend to buy 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pimlico or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Pimlico is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Pimlico are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Pimlico you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pimlico 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 premises.

How does one remove a departed person's details from the title deeds for a house in Pimlico?
If a Pimlico property is co-owned and one of the owners dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to amend the title as when it comes to a sale you would simply need to evidence as to the reason the joint owner is not included in the conveyance, ordinarily this is in the form of a grant of probate.
With the aim of making the sale conveyancing simpler in the future you may arrange to have the deceased name removed from the title register by applying to HMLR with evidence of the death. There is no fee from the Registry for this service.
