How up to date is your database of Tilbury solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? Do Leeds Building Society send you an updated list?
Tilbury conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Leeds Building Society directly.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Tilbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Tilbury lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Tilbury. Having lived in Tilbury for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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 sickness)
I have justfound out that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Tilbury for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the premises is registered to you, 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 Tilbury conveyancing specialists.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Tilbury is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Tilbury are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tilbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tilbury 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 premises.
Is planning consent necessary to convert a single dwelling into two appartments in Tilbury? This has occurred to a house next door to my home in Tilbury and was not aware of it happening until it was complete.
Planning Consent yes. Building Reg Approval yes.
