In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Shirebrook? What am I being asked for?

In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Shirebrook conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing your correct address.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to ascertain not just the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may lead to your conveyancer ending their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers are duty bound to notify the appropriate authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

What will a local search tell me regarding the property my wife and I buying in Shirebrook?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Shirebrook is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Shirebrook are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Shirebrook you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Shirebrook may ascertain 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.

There are only Fifty years unexpired on my lease in Shirebrook. I need to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What should I do?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to locate the freeholder. On the whole a specialist should be helpful to carry out a search and prepare a report which can be used as evidence that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Shirebrook.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
