    Dealing with BVD/Government Legal Dept and Treasury Solicitor - freehold reversion


    Could anyone share any experience or knowledge of the process and timeline of how quickly the treasury solicitor acts upon making an offer to sell freehold back to leaseholders after the original freeholder had his company dissolved (10 years ago)

    There are only 2 leaseholders, one of which was the original freeholder. Both are 100% in agreement they want to buy back and share the freehold.

    All relevant documents and valuations have been submitted to the treasury solicitor department a week ago now but no communication has been received back since (previously emails were generally responded to within the day)

    Does the treasury solicitor instruct further solicitors? Or does he/they draw up their own offer? As it seems to be a straight forward and simple transaction, and the fact it is mentioned in BVC4 that they want to be as efficient as possible and keep costs to a minimum, it seems absurd we are hearing nothing.

    Many thanks for thoughts

      No. This is a separate and unique post. My comment on the above post you mention was because it was a similar situation. I apologise if I am not adhering to any rules I am not aware of.

        Hi.

        I have recently discovered a problem with the leasehold flat I live in. I purchased the flat years ago, 1 flat of a block of 4. I recently went onto Land registry to see my lease and noticed my lease on there is only 99 years, the original deed from 1978. This lease was changed by deed...

        In that case ask the conveyancer who acted why he did not make sure the DoV was registered. You can also ask him if he has it.

        Hi. It was executed before I purchased the flat, about 17 years before

        Was the deed of variation executed before or after you bought? Whichever it was, were you legally represented?

        Hi thank you for replying. The problem is I only have a photocopy of the DoV and I have gone back to the solicitors who wrote the deed, who have since been taken over by another solicitors, and they have confirmed they dont have any records relating to this and have checked all the previous solicitors...

        If the Land Registry has not updated, it will be held in trust by the executors. The combination of the will and the Land Registry entry should be all that is necessary.

        Note, that they should be paying the ground rent and service charges. Once they have probate, they no longer have any...

        Is there any way to find out if this is the case (held in trust by the nephews)?

        Assuming this is the case I can't imagine they are particularly incentivised to get this sorted, they had their part of the inheritance 2 years ago....

        mrs. sparkle
        Recently purchased an auction property and the lender I am obtaining bridging finance from requires a solicitor to represent them from their panel.

        What I wanted to know is whether it is okay for the lenders solicitor to also represent me the purchaser?

        Someone mentioned to...
