Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yarm

Souldretaining a Yarm conveyancing practitioner make my purchase more efficient?

Generally conveyancing practitioners in your area will have excellent connections with your local authority, which can assist with your Yarm conveyancing searches that your solicitor will require. It can only assist if they have existing relationships with the Land Registry overseeing your area Yarm, other lawyers in the neighbourhood and Yarm selling agents.

It is is a decade since I bought my property in Yarm. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a problem?

You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Yarm involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

Me and my brother have a terraced Edwardian property in Yarm. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should read 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 Yarm 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 lenders. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Yarm ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders tend not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Yarm. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Am I right to be suspicious by brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a local Yarm conveyancing practice?

As with lots of professional services, often input from family and friends can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are many people with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may recommend conveyancers to retain. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers operate an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.

I am intending to rent out my leasehold apartment in Yarm. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Your lease governs the relationship between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Yarm do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the property. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the tenancy agreement.

Yarm Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to buying

    How is the lease structured? Its a good idea to find out as much as possible about the company managing the block as they will impact your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to practical issues like the cleanliness of the common parts. Enquire of other people what they think of their service. On a final note, be sure you understand the dates that the maintenance charges are due to the managing agents and specifically what it includes. It would be wise to enquire if there are any onerous restrictions in the lease. For example it is very common in Yarm leases that pets are not allowed in in a block in Yarm. If you love the apartmentin Yarm yet your dog can’t make the move with you then you have a very hard determination.
