It is is a decade since I purchased my house in Windermere. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Windermere relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.
I need some fast conveyancing in Windermere as I have a deadline to exchange contracts inside one month. Thankfully I do not require a mortgage. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?
As you are are a cash purchaser you are at free not to do searches although no lawyer would suggest that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Windermere the following are instances of what can appear and therefore affect future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Fees, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Windermere is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Windermere are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Windermere you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Windermere may ascertain 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.
Taking into account that I am about to part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Windermere I wish to talk to a solicitor regarding thehouse move in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
