Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shadwell

It is is a decade since I acquired my property in Shadwell. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Shadwell relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

We previously chose solicitors with offices in Shadwell on the Clydesdale solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate fee for the legal aspects of the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Clydesdale but by your Shadwell lawyer. Some firms on the Clydesdale panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.

Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that may impact a commercial land in Shadwell?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Shadwell will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Shadwell. The search result sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Shadwell.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Shadwell it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Shadwell. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Shadwell ahead of appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks tend not give a mortgage on this type of property.
