It is a dozen years since I acquired my property in Redcar and Cleveland. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by your mortgage company or they could be archived with the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers.

Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Redcar and Cleveland. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Redcar and Cleveland and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

How does conveyancing in Redcar and Cleveland differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Redcar and Cleveland approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Redcar and Cleveland typically acquire 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 conveyancers 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 Redcar and Cleveland or who has acted in the same development.
