Please help. My Aberaeron conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound toapply for Aberaeron conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Do I not have a choice here?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Aberaeron conveyancing searches.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Aberaeron I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Aberaeron for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

Given that I am about to part with 450k on 3 bedroom house in Aberaeron I wish to have a conversation with the solicitor concerning theconveyancing ahead of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

This is something that we recommend - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Aberaeron.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a file number.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint their preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Aberaeron

It is improbable the vendors are driving this. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the owners directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Aberaeron conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 68 years unexpired on my flat in Aberaeron. I now want to extend my lease but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to find the freeholder. For most situations a specialist would be helpful to try and locate and to produce a report which can be used as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Aberaeron.

I purchased a 2 bed flat in Aberaeron, conveyancing formalities finalised April 2006. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Aberaeron with a long lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2076

With only 53 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as professional fees.
