I have recentlybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Little Mill for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest way to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Little Mill conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Little Mill differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Little Mill contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Little Mill typically purchase the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Little Mill or who has acted in the same development.
I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Little Mill before appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not give a loan on this type of house.

There are only 62 years left on my flat in Little Mill. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to track down the lessor. On the whole an enquiry agent may be helpful to try and locate and prepare an expert document to be used as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Little Mill.
