I am buying a house and the lawyer has mentioned Chancel Repair to which the house may be liable given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has recommended insurance. Is this really necessary for conveyancing in Kineton
Unless a prior purchase of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you could take it that lawyers conducting conveyancing in Kineton to continue to advocate a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.
four months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Kineton took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 property 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Kineton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

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.

I purchased a flat in Kineton last 20/9/2017 and to date it is still not recorded with HM Land Registry. It is part of a new estate and my property lawyer told me that it may take one year to register. I have contacted HM Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
It is your conveyancer that you must contact in order to satisfy any concerns which have been raised as part of the registration process for your Kineton property. Normal Kineton conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the vendor’s property lawyer that they will assist in resolving any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking in some way.
