Do not opt for the lowest Hanslope conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors.

Have purchased a a detached house in Hanslope , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Hanslope conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure the registration formalities are concluded.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Hanslope is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Hanslope are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Hanslope you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hanslope may determine 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.
