Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Hoxton 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
Assuming you have a registered title the details of your ownership will be retained by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Hoxton is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Hoxton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hoxton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hoxton may decide 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.

By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Hoxton. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you clear the invoice as you normally would as all rents and service charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
