My relative recommended that where I am purchasing in Wimborne I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard Wimborne conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Wimborne around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Wimborne Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Wimborne.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Wimborne is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Wimborne are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wimborne you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wimborne may ascertain 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 property.

Are there any apps to help search for a Wimborne solicitor on the Chelsea Building Society conveyancing panel? I am a keen cyclist and am willing to travel upto 10miles to meet the conveyancer.

We have listed some Wimborne conveyancing firms towards the end of this page and you can contact them to check whether they are on the Chelsea Building Society member panel

Am I best advised to use a Wimborne conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am buying? We have a good friend who can execute the legal work however they are based over three hundred miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Wimborne conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, present your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Wimborne know how is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and they were content that should trump using an unfamiliar Wimborne conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Wimborne.Conveyancing has not commenced however I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

It best that you discharge the service charge as you normally would because all ground rent and service payments should be allottedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
