My wife and I have a semi-detached Victorian property in Ferndale. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to assess 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 Ferndale and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

How does conveyancing in Ferndale differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Ferndale approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because developers in Ferndale typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ferndale or who has acted in the same development.

I am considering appointing a web based conveyancer as opposed to a Ferndale conveyancing firm. Am I making a mistake?
