As a novice what is the most important piece of guidance you can impart about purchase conveyancing in Beverley?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Beverley and elsewhere in East Yorkshire is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the house moving process. For instance, the vendor, property agent and even potentially a mortgage company. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Beverley should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose responsibility is to look after your best interests and to protect you.

There is a worrying increase in the "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. You your first instinct should be to trust your solicitor above the other players in the conveyancing process.

Me and my brother have a terraced Georgian property in Beverley. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to assess 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Beverley 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 mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

How does conveyancing in Beverley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Beverley approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Beverley typically purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Beverley or who has acted in the same development.
