I have justfound out that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Lixwm for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to check if the property is in your name, 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 Lixwm conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Lixwm differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Lixwm come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Lixwm tend to buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Lixwm or who has acted in the same development.
I am selling my house. My previous lawyers have shut. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Lixwm if that makes a difference.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we use their recommended solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Lixwm
It is improbable the sellers are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Lixwm conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
Should one remove a departed person's name from the title deeds for a house in Lixwm?
If a Lixwm property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors passes away, the name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to amend the title as in the event of a sale your lawyer would just be asked to supply proof as to the reason the other owner is not a party to the conveyance, usually this takes the form of the probate documents.
With the aim of making the sale conveyancing smoother for the sale of the property you may apply to have the deceased party erased from the title entries by submitting an application to HM Land Registry with evidence of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
