Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Tiptree who completed the legal work 18 months ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from Barclays . It looks as though am now being quoted double. Should I hunt for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

I purchased a freehold premises in Tiptree but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Tiptree and has limited impact for conveyancing in Tiptree but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.
I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Tiptree for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest way to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Tiptree conveyancing specialists.
I'm buying my first flat in Tiptree with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about this deal as it would affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Tiptree is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tiptree you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 residence.
