I am expecting a OIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Sandy solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Sandy

We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Sandy conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Sandy. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Sandy - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

How does one remove a deceased person's details from the title deeds for a house in Sandy?

If a Sandy property is co-owned and one of the proprietors dies, their name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to amend the title as in the event of a sale you would just be required to evidence why the co owner is missing from the transfer, such as a grant of probate.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing simpler for the sale of the property you can apply to have the deceased party removed from the title by applying to HMLR with evidence of the death. There is no fee from the Registry for this service.
