Our family solicitor has given a fee calculation of just over a thousand pound for leasehold conveyancing in Dewsbury. I’m selling a Georgian house for £300,000. Is this expensive? Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Dewsbury?
The estimate does seem marginally steep. If you shop around you could decrease the fees marginally by as much as a hundred pounds. On the other hand, you couldlive to regret opting for an an untested lawyer. Don't forget to enquire the solicitor can also act for your bank. You can make use of our search tool to choose a Dewsbury conveyancing practice on the lender’s approved list of lawyers which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Dewsbury.

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Victorian property in Dewsbury. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Skipton Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should review 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dewsbury and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Dewsbury is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Dewsbury are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dewsbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dewsbury 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.
