It is a dozen years since I bought my house in Verwood. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be with your lender or they could be archived with the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Verwood involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
My relative recommended that if I am buying in Verwood I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Verwood is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Verwood are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Verwood 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 Verwood may decide 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.
