Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Ceredigion is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Ceredigion are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ceredigion you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ceredigion may decide 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.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a residential purchase having been recommend to conveyancers by the local agent to perform conveyancing in Ceredigion. I am not happy. Can you help me find new solicitors?
A lawyer would need to be very poor in order to consider changing them. Has the mortgage been sent? In the event that it has you must make them aware of the new conveyancer and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and frustration. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors. Our search tool should help you find a bank approved solicitor for your conveyancing in Ceredigion
