I opted for a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Droylsden yesterday. Going through the Terms and Conditions I notewe are responsible for fees even if our purchase aborts. Should I go with them or choose an on-line firm promising no completion no cost conveyancing in Droylsden?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to offset the transactions that do not go ahead. Please beware that these schemes generally do not cover expenses for instance Droylsden conveyancing search costs.
My colleague suggested that if I am buying in Droylsden I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Droylsden conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Droylsden around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Droylsden.
My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Droylsden. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Yorkshire Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Yorkshire Building Society to clarify?
You need to read 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Droylsden 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 purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
