As someone not used to conveyancing in Bonvilston what is your top tip you can impart concerning the ownership transfer in Bonvilston
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Bonvilston and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, estate agent and even potentially the lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Bonvilston is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose role it is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a potential adversary will try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
I have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Bonvilston. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and HSBC Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bonvilston 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 position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.
Am I right to be wary about brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Bonvilston conveyancing company?
As is the case with many professional services, often recommendations from family and friends can be most helpful. Yet there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all recommend conveyancers to instruct. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you must use for the lender related work in your transaction.
