Much to our surprise we have been advised by our mortgage adviser that my Kingswood property lawyer is not on the bank Solicitor panel. How can I be sure that this is correct?
The best course of action for you to take is to contact your Kingswood conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Kingswood?
If you are buying a property in Kingswood your lawyer will request that you place them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Normally this is needed to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is payable against the total price then this should be needed shortly ahead of exchange of contracts. The final balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.
Me and my brother have a renovated Edwardian property in Kingswood. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to read 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Kingswood and other areas of 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 buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.
