In looking at moneysavingexpert.com for an online solicitor in Fleet, most post that I must use a CQS assured lawyer. What is CQS?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's leading lenders. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Fleet is one of the many areas of the UK where there are Accredited lawyers.
My wife and I own a terraced Victorian house in Fleet. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Halifax. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should review 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 Fleet and other locations in 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 buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Fleet. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Fleet
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
