I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of obstruction in Arlesey house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Arlesey.
My wife and I own a semi-detached Georgian house in Arlesey. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to review 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 Arlesey and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
I decided to have a survey done on a house in Arlesey ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you call us we can investigate further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Arlesey. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Arlesey to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
