I'm the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Alperton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. many lenders would take a pragmatic view as this clause primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Alperton. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Skipton Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be 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 Alperton 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 purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

How does conveyancing in Alperton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Alperton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Alperton usually acquire 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Alperton or who has acted in the same development.
