As someone with no idea as to the South Cave conveyancing process what’s the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in South Cave

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in South Cave and elsewhere in East Yorkshire is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, property agent and even potentially a lender. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in South Cave is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the legal process whose interest is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.

There is a worrying increase in the "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer ahead of the other parties in the home moving process.

We are planning on selling our home in South Cave and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in South Cave. We have lived in South Cave for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in South Cave concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does one as executor remove a deceased person's name from the title register for a house in South Cave?

If a South Cave property is co-owned and one of the owners dies, the name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds. It is not necessary to amend the title as in the event of a sale you would simply be asked to supply proof as to the reason the joint proprietor is missing from the transfer, such as the probate documents.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing more straight forward for the sale of the property you may apply to have the deceased party erased from the title entries by applying to HMLR with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
