    Homeless, sort of......and



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    ....a cautionary tale.

    We completed the sale on our house on the 29th September, promising the buyers we would move out on that date. We thought that we would be moving to our new address two weeks later, how wrong we were. Our solicitor discovered that the new house is not on the Land Registry and the beneficiaries [deceased estate]of the sale of the house are having their names registered with the registry. Our solicitor advised us that the registering process can take up to 14 weeks, which means we are homeless, well sort of, we are having a jolly in the MH for the duration.
    It does beg the question though, why are the beneficiaries registering their name when they are selling the house? And,why put the house on the market before the registration is completed? It is a tad galling to say the least as we are paying two lots of removals and storage in between, costing us an extra £2k we hadn't accounted for. Furthermore, surely the estate agents, one of the biggest in Cheshire, would have been aware of the situation?
    Apparently, there are many properties that are not on the Land Registry and it only became a legal requirement in the mid '70's for all property to be registered. One of the consequences of this is, solicitors are making a fortune out of this extra work, surprise surprise eh.
    If it weren't for the fact that the new house ticks most of the boxes and the price is right, we would be looking elsewhere.

    So, if you are considering buying property, ask if it is on the Land Registry, it just may save you a lot of money, time and hassle.

    Why would the estate agent be interested it is the legal aspect and nothing to do with them they are purely sales negotiators and advertising providers.
    We had similar and ended up paying for probate as the beneficiary of the will hadn't done anything about registering the probate for 12 years !
    We got it sorted through the court but it took ages !

    Good job you invested in a decent MH.
    Enjoy your enforced adventures.

    I'd be sorely tempted to play the tough guy with the estate agents, telling them that it's their cock up that has created this situation.
    Show them a photo of your MH and tell them that you'll drive off into the sunset if they don't put the matter right, and pay the costs out of their commission, by 29th October, ( or whatever ).
    Mind you, I'm sat on a warm Algarve terrace and haven't fallen in love with your dream home.
    You're sitting pretty... A buyer with no chain or commitments..... And a wad of ready cash in your hand.
    Make sure that the vendors are aware of this.
    If it all goes wrong, come and park on our new village aire.
    To the pure in mind, all things are pure

    Seems odd - I wonder if they are trying to avoid inheritance tax on the property by saying it’s their home and in the meanwhile it’s going to cost you. I must admit I’d be threatening to walk away- but maybe that’s what they want.

    I am not sure Andrew, we were asked if we were freehold, if we owned the property outright and if there was anything relevant that they should know about.

    Hi Ral.

    Surely this should have shown up in the conveyancy searches, a search of the land registry is a legal requirement when buying/selling a house.

    It sounds to me that your solicitor should have picked this up BEFORE completion on the house. Or am I misunderstanding the situation?

    In the meantime, I will send round my friends Mr Smith and Mr O' Malley and their large families to house sit (well drive sit) your new home for you. Did you say there was an outside loo?
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!
