Thanks Land Registry! – Super-Fast Nottingham Conveyancing

When Fridaysmove Nottingham Conveyancing Solicitor Jane Lim received instructions from the sellers of a freehold house in the Wollaton area of Nottingham she was able to swing into action immediately and get the sale moving fast.  

As soon as Jane had received the necessary information from her clients to start Conveyancing in Nottingham, Jane was quickly able to obtain a copy of the legal title to the property from the Land Registry. This government agency, now has records of the majority of land titles on its register. It provides online services both to Conveyancers in Nottingham and across the country, and also to other property professionals, which enable copies of house titles to be obtained almost instantaneously.   As the seller's Solicitors have to have this information to enable them to prepare the draft contract, being able to obtain copies online allows the initial legal work on house sales to be speeded up enormously.

Warning - Local Conveyancing Hazard

Sellers’ Conveyancing Solicitors must check that the person who has instructed them actually owns the property. Property fraud is on the increase, and checking that the vendor is the registered proprietor is now an important part of the Solicitor's work. Of course sometimes there is a reason for a discrepancy, such as where the vendor is the executor of an owner who has died, but the Conveyancers will have to make appropriate enquiries if there is any problem.

In this case the house was registered in the names of the people who had instructed us, and Nottingham Conveyancer Jane had already carried out the necessary ID checks on them. There were no difficulties in proceeding.

Thanks to comprehensive sales particulars received from the selling agents, the local office of Property Investment Portfolio, with the names of the buyers and their solicitors, she was able to complete and sent the draft contract and related papers to the buyer’s Solicitors by email the same day.

Local Nottingham Solicitors firm Massers acted for the buyers from their city centre office in Victoria Street, Nottingham, NG1 2JZ. They responded promptly with additional enquiries, and put in hand the local search from Nottingham City Council.

The sale went through very smoothly without any hold-ups, and the agents said that they were impressed by the speed with which Fridaysmove had dealt with things.
