Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leeswood

I am buying a terraced house in Leeswood. Conveyancing solicitors are said to be ‘a necessary evil’ but can I do it myself?

Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Leeswood you will have to appoint a solicitor on your lender's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Leeswood.

I am intent on selling our property in Leeswood and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Leeswood lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Leeswood. Having lived in Leeswood for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must 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)

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Leeswood is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Leeswood are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Leeswood you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Leeswood may ascertain 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 property.

Is there a reason that Leeswood conveyancing fees differ for leasehold and freehold properties?

There is always increased work needed in leasehold conveyancing. Leeswood has many leasehold properties. There is more paperwork involved in the purchase: for example, the lease and leasehold information (including current service charge, ground rent and buildings insurance details) obtained from the freeholder or managing agents. There are strict criteria that the lease must meet in order to be acceptable to a mortgage company. If it does not meet these requirements, the lease must be amended, which can involve additional expense for the seller.
