We are about to sign contracts for a leasehold flat in Dorset. We have hit a snag. The loan offer with Santander runs out on 12/8/2024 but the vendors are insisting on a completion date of 14/8/2024. Is it possible to extend the mortgage expiry date?

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 straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Dorset is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Dorset are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dorset you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dorset may ascertain 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 premises.

We are in the process of purchasing a home in Dorset. Can our conveyancer keep our transaction price confidential from sites such as Zoopla. How can this be done?

HMLR by statute are required to disclose price sold information on the official title for domestic properties nationwide which includes properties in Dorset. The register of title is an open document, so the Land Registry would be breaking the law excluded certain properties such as your one in Dorset.

You can make a request of the Land Registry to hide the amount paid entry however the answer would be a No.
