My grandfather passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Flackwell Heath. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £8000. I want to have the title changed into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Clydesdale, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?
Where you intend to refinance then Clydesdale will require that you use a conveyancer on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Clydesdale conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Clydesdale mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
We are selling our house in Flackwell Heath and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Flackwell Heath. Having lived in Flackwell Heath for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Flackwell Heath completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
