Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Snodland is more expensive?
Snodland leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
My partner and I are intent on selling our property in Snodland and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Snodland conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Snodland. We have lived in Snodland for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
Me and my brother own a renovated Georgian property in Snodland. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barclays . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Snodland and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Snodland is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Snodland are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Snodland you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Snodland may decide 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 residence.
