Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Southall. Conveyancing is needed. What is next?
Having for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should instruct a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of urgency as you will have a tight deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. All auction property should have an associated legal set of papers. This will likely include most,if not all of the documents that your solicitor will need. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the auction pack should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property. You need to give this to the conveyancer instructed by you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds organised to complete on the date specified in the contract.

We were going to get a AIP from Principality this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Southall solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Southall is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Southall are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Southall you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.
