My wife and I own a terraced Victorian property in Grays. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Grays and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
I am looking into buying my first house which is in Grays and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Grays. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Grays area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Grays. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found
We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the property agent told us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Grays
We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Contact the owners directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Grays conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.
