At what point does exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Beaminster and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Beaminster you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Beaminster)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Beaminster is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Beaminster are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Beaminster you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beaminster may determine 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.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Beaminster. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Beaminster - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
