Finally the sale completed on my house in Porthleven last February but our buyer keeps e-mailing daily to say her conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Porthleven.
The deeds to my house can not be found. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Porthleven 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?

If copies can’t be located, your lawyer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on your property.
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 simple, no chain conveyancing. Porthleven is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Porthleven you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Porthleven 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 premises.
