We instructed a Watford based lawyer for our conveyancing in Watford last week. Going through the official terms of business I seewe are on the hook for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to use an on-line conveyancing brokerage offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Watford?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to offset the transactions that do not proceed. Please beware that such offerings generally do not protect you from expenses by way of example Watford conveyancing search expenses.

My wife and I own a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Watford. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and TSB. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking TSB to clarify?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Watford and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? 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.
