I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. East Sussex is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in East Sussex are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in East Sussex you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Sussex 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 property.
Taking into account that I will soon part with over three hundred thousand on a house in East Sussex I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer about mytransaction in advance of giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?
We could not agree more - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be conducting your property ownership legalities in East Sussex.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a matter number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for residential conveyancing in East Sussex should be the figure that you are charged.
We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we use the agent's chosen lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in East Sussex
It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted East Sussex conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will give the negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.
I am purchasing a ground floor apartment in East Sussex. Conveyancing solicitor has been awaiting, from the vendor, building insurance paperwork. Earlier today I was advised that the vendor must forward the insurance documents for the flat above also. Why does my solicitor need to see the insurance for the flat above? Is it strictly necessary? We have been waiting for the previous month…
It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in East Sussex to discover Conveyancing in East Sussex in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the complete premises - which is definitely better. Do double check with your property lawyer but it would seem that your solicitor is seeking to establish that the complete building is insured. Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reconstructed due to lack of insurance.
