It has come to my attention via my mortgage broker that my Bakewell the law firm I have appointed is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain that this is indeed the case?
Your first step should be to contact your Bakewell lawyer directly. You lawyer should notify you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Bakewell 4 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?
In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware exactly where to look for all the relevant documentation so you can purchase or sell your house without any difficulty. Where copies can’t be found, your lawyer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on your premises.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Bakewell is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Bakewell are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bakewell you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bakewell may decide 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 residence.
