My wife and I have a renovated Victorian property in Upper Clapton. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and HSBC Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
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 Upper Clapton 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 your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Upper Clapton is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Upper Clapton 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 Upper Clapton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Upper Clapton 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.
Do I need to be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm rather than a local Upper Clapton conveyancing company?
As with many professional services, often recommendations from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may suggest conveyancers to retain. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there might be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that most banks operate an approved list of law firms you have to use for the lender related work in your home move.
Am I better off to instruct a Upper Clapton conveyancing lawyer based in the area that I am hoping to buy? An old friend can execute the conveyancing but his firm is located 200kilometers away.
The benefit of a local Upper Clapton conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Upper Clapton know how is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and the majority were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Upper Clapton conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
My husband and I have AIP from Alliance & Leicester who have advised that they will lend up to £117k. At what point do I need to appoint a solicitor for conveyancing? Upper Clapton is where we plan to move to.
You can instruct a lawyer now and ask them to open a file on your behalf. This will enable: 1) the selling agent to issue a Sales Memorandum to all parties 2) the seller’s conveyancing practitioner to send out the draft agreement. That being said, do not ask your property lawyer to start searches until you receive your valuation report from Alliance & Leicester and you are happy to move forward.
