We are planning to acquire a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Marlow who is on the TSB approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for TSB . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Marlow.
My wife and I own a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Marlow. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should assess 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Marlow and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with the conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Marlow prior to instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on such a home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you call us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Marlow. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Marlow especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Marlow.
I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Marlow. I've chance upon a site which seems to have the perfect offering If it is possible to get all the legals done via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
What is the reason for my lawyer requiring a list of items of ID ahead of starting selling or purchasing a property in Marlow?
Marlow property lawyers are duty bound by the Law Society, Solicitors Regulation Authority, HM Land Registry and current AML Regulations to record that the have verified the identity of their clients. It is also sometimes a condition of your mortgage offer. Furthermore they have to complete various forms, particularly those relating to SDLT and need to have details such as your full names, NI number and date of birth.
