I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for hinderance in Braunton house deals. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Braunton.
I own a renovated Georgian property in Braunton. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and The Mortgage Works. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should read 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 Braunton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
I'm remortgaging my primary home to a buy to let mortgage with Bank of Ireland and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on a second house. The neighborhood we are interested in is Braunton. Will your solicitors be able to act for both sets of lenders and link together the two deals?

As co-executor for the will of my father I am selling a house in Cardiff but I am based in Braunton. My conveyancer (approximately 260 kilometers awayneeds me to sign a stat dec ahead of completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Braunton to witness this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Braunton
The lawyers conducting our conveyancing in Braunton has sent papers to review that indicate that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not registred at the Land Registry?
Most property in Braunton is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Plenty of Braunton conveyancing solicitors will be able to handle this type of conveyancing but if any uncertainty prevails the conventional recommendation presently seems to be for the vendor’s solicitor to address the registration formalities first and thereafter deal with the sale conveyance - this can though naturally cause a significant delay.
