I have been told that property searches are the main cause of delay in Skegness house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the common causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Skegness.

I have justbecome aware that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Skegness for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Skegness conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Skegness differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Skegness come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Skegness tend to buy the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Skegness or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Skegness is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Skegness are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Skegness 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 Skegness 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 residence.
