When will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Helston and am I required to be at the conveyancers office?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Helston you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the law practices we recommend supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Helston)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
My wife and I own a renovated Victorian property in Helston. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Chelsea Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching 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 Helston and other locations in 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 buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Helston is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Helston are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Helston you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Helston 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 premises.
