In the absence of a home loan, then almost all of the Blackwood conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to take that path of encouragement . Do consider; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it will be of relevance to your future purchaser what the searches disclose.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Blackwood is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Blackwood are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Blackwood you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Blackwood may ascertain 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 thinking of instructing a web based conveyancing practitioner rather than a Blackwood conveyancing practice. Any advice?

  • signing documents same day
  • getting one on one explanations of things that you need help with
  • the ability to raise concerns if matters go pear-shaped
