Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Ireleth and Askam. Conveyancing solicitors have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to find the title deeds. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

Should my lawyer be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Ireleth and Askam. Some people will buy a property in Ireleth and Askam, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Ireleth and Askam. The conventional set of information sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to find out whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may bring a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A buyer’s lawyers will also carry out an environmental search. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be conducted.

three months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Ireleth and Askam is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Ireleth and Askam are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ireleth and Askam you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ireleth and Askam 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.
