After scouring moneysavingexpert.com for an online lawyer in Seascale, many say that I should use a CQS assured lawyer. Can you explain what CQS is?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's leading mortgage companies. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Legal Ombudsman. CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Seascale is one of the many areas of the UK where there are Accredited lawyers.

How does conveyancing in Seascale differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Seascale come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Seascale 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Seascale or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Seascale is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Seascale are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Seascale you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Seascale may determine 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 residence.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Seascale. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Seascale - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
