As someone clueless as to conveyancing in Denton what’s your top tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Denton
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Denton or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the transaction. E.g., the seller, selling agent and even potentially your bank. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Denton is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose responsibility is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Every so often a third party with a vested interest may try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is contrary to your conveyancers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

Me and my brother own a renovated Edwardian property in Denton. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Yorkshire Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Denton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
