A big part of the conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. This section tells you all about them. What they are, how and when to order them and how to interpret the results. Each search has its own guide and you'll see they are separated into Standard (should be done in every case), Regional (area specific) and Optional (not essential but often useful tools for the would be purchaser). All buyers should beware that when you buy a property, the law assumes that you have seen the information that would have been revealed by searches whether or not you have actually carried them out, so you buy the property subject to the results.
Using a conveyancer to handle your conveyancing will greatly reduce the risk to you and sometimes, particularly if you are taking out a new mortgage, you will have no choice but to instruct a conveyancer. The good news is it doesn't have to break the bank. Get a free, instant quote here. We can also help with quick easy quotes for other moving related services.
Are you looking for the documents you'll need for your conveyancing transaction? Or official copies of the title or other documents from Land Registry. We can help you. Follow the links below.
Where two people own a property jointly and elect to hold it as tenants in common, the Land Registry will enter a “Form A” restriction on the title to alert potential purchasers to the presence of a trust and to prevent a sale or mortgage by a sole proprietor. If the property is transferred by the joint owners together to someone new the restriction will be removed automatically. If however it is transferred from joint names into the sole name of one of the parties or if one of the parties dies leaving a sole survivor it will not. In order for the remaining sole owner to deal with the property he will need to remove the restriction and one way is to make an application using Land Registry form RX3 and swear a statutory declaration confirming that he is solely entitled to the legal and beneficial interest in support of the application. A statutory declaration must be signed in the presence of a solicitor or commissioner for oaths. It is also possible to make a “Statement of Truth”.
