Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shillington

My partner and I are acquiring a newly built flat in Shillington and my conveyancer is telling me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the seller. I am on a tight deadline to exchange and I have no desire to prolong matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

It is is a decade since I purchased my house in Shillington. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find my title documents. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be with your lender or they may stored with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Shillington relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list firms on the Melton Mowbray Building Society conveyancing panel for example in Shillington?

Lexsure has not been advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Shillington is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Shillington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Shillington you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Shillington 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 property.

I was advised by three or four local selling agents in Shillington to locate a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your lawyers over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any commission for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
