Post completion of your disposal your solicitor is duty bound to send the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor should also evidence that the home loan has been redeemed to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps just for conveyancing in Desborough.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Desborough 10 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?
As long as you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be retained by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.

Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? 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. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Monmouth but I am based in Desborough. My solicitor (based 250 miles from mehas requested that I sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Desborough to witness this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Desborough based
