I own a renovated Edwardian property in Walton Le Dale. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same 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 Walton Le Dale and other locations in 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 mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
How does conveyancing in Walton Le Dale differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Walton Le Dale contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Walton Le Dale tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Walton Le Dale or who has acted in the same development.

We are hoping to buy a three bedroom housein Walton Le Dale with a loan from a mortgage company. We like our conveyancer in Walton Le Dale however our bank advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our bank panel firms or stay with our Walton Le Dale solicitor and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The lender mortgage issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had open panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Walton Le Dale : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
