Me and my brother purchased a renovated Georgian property in Heston. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Heston and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Heston. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Heston
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

My offer on semi in Heston has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have submitted an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and has viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing lawyer in Heston. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money?
It is standard to have apprehensions where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Heston conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your property lawyer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for a home loan with Virgin Money and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in Heston.
