My partner and I are selling our property in Langport and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Langport. We have lived in Langport for 5 years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
How does conveyancing in Langport differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Langport come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Langport usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Langport or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Langport is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Langport are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Langport you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Langport 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 residence.
