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.

I have been told by various family members to expect 6-8 weeks for Porthleven conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The draft contract was only forwarded to my conveyancing practitioner yesterday so now does it countdown?
You should be pragmatic concerning timescales. Property transactions in Porthleven usually takes about ten weeks. This timeframe is not due to conveyancing practitioner being slow and purposely delay matters. The level of money involved in purchasing any residence is so high, the buyer’s solicitor having to carry out a wide range of enquiries, searches and supplemental checks to protect the purchaser and their lender (if there is to be a home loan) from expensive, avoidable problems. These investigations involves obtaining information from a range of different parties, for example other lawyer, local councils, private companies, building societies and banks. Many of these are efficient. Plenty aren't. And remember, no matter how quickly your lawyer do their job, if the people you are buying from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can move forward until they are.
