At long last a loan offer from NatWest for the refinancing of my 2 bedroom maisonette is to be issued within the next few days. Are you able to suggest a cheap conveyancing lawyer in Uxbridge?
You are on the wrong site if you are seeking the lowest fares for conveyancing in Uxbridge. Our intention is to offer value for money conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Avoid the trap of appointing brokers enticing you with £100 conveyancing in Uxbridge. Optimistically, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst you will end up invoiced for extras and still not get the service expected.
My wife and I own a semi-detached Edwardian property in Uxbridge. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and National Westminster Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Uxbridge and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Uxbridge I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Uxbridge for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I am an executor of my recently deceased mum’s Will, with a property in Uxbridge which will be marketed. The property has never been registered at the Land Registry and I'm told that some buyers solicitors will insist that it is in place before they'll move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the situation that you have set out it seems advisable to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
