Having sold my house in Clifton last August yet the purchaser is calling every few hours to moan that his solicitor is waiting to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Following your house sale your lawyer should deliver the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. If applicable, your conveyancer should also evidence that the home loan has been repaid to the buyers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Clifton.

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for obstruction in Clifton conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Clifton.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Clifton?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Clifton. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Clifton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Clifton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Clifton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Clifton may determine 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 residence.
