Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hull West

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Hull West. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by your lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Hull West involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address.

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Hull West 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 buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
