Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to attend the offices of the solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in South Oxhey so that I can attend their offices if necessary.
Whereas this was necessary twenty years ago, the vast majority mortgage companies no longer require their conveyancing panel lawyer to witness the mortgagors signature. You will still be obliged to hand over ID documents and there are still manifest advantages to instructing a local ayer, in your situation a conveyancing solicitor in South Oxhey.
I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for stalling in South Oxhey house deals. Is there any truth in this?

4 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in South Oxhey took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 property 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.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in South Oxhey. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in South Oxhey
Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. South Oxhey is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in South Oxhey are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside South Oxhey you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 South Oxhey 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.
