In the event thatI were to acquire a simple residential homein Horbury for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Horbury?
The sole reduction in fees you would achieve is the disbursement for searches. A solicitor is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with the sellers conveyancer, SDLT return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be significant.
Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Horbury. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should 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 Horbury 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 mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.
