I am in need of a conveyancer. Do I opt for an online conveyancer or a high street Sipson conveyancing solicitor?

Established third party connections is an important consideration when appointing conveyancing solicitors. Sipson law firms enjoy connections with financial advisers and Sipson, local authorities, surveyors and other conveyancing firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Having a wealth of experience in the local area is also a plus .

I know that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to take this when acquiring a house in Sipson? or I am told that there is an ancient law that could mean that owners of property residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for repairs towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this applicable for conveyancing in Sipson?

Unless a prior purchase of the property completed post 12 October 2013 you may take it that lawyers handling conveyancing in Sipson to continue to recommend a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

My wife and I purchased a terraced Edwardian property in Sipson. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Skipton Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Skipton Building Society to clarify?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Sipson and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Sipson is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Sipson are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Sipson you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Sipson 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 property.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that seems to tick a lot of boxes, at a reasonable figure which is making it more attractive. I have since been informed that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Sipson. Conveyancing advisers have are about to be appointed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Sipson are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer used to dealing with such properties who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are purchasing in Sipson so you should seriously consider looking for a Sipson conveyancing practitioner and be sure that they are used to advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a tenant you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions for example obtaining the freeholder’spermission to carry out changes to the property. It may be necessary to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the property is part of an estate. Your solicitor should advise you fully on all the issues.

I inherited a first flat in Sipson. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the premium due for the purchase of the freehold?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to determine the sum to be paid.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Sipson flat is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 69 years.

I have selected a Sipson conveyancing solicitor for our home move (novice purchasers) and have spotted in the engagement letter that they are not governed by the Financial Conduct Authority. Need I be concerned or is that standard with solicitor?

We can't see why they should be. Most solicitor don't lend money. You should check that they are regulated by the SRA, who dictate specific rules regulating funds sitting in their bank.
