What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Abercynon
There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Abercynon and Solicitor partnerships in Abercynon who can assist with your conveyancing We would stress that the two are supervised by regulatory bodies with both specialising in the legal aspects of the home buying process. They may both also deal with other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.
My lawyer has informed me that chancel insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Abercynon?
The appropriate level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
My offer on a detached house in Abercynon has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Abercynon. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS started?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Abercynon conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your lawyer is on the UBS approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many buyers would apply for a home loan with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to press on with searches.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Abercynon I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Abercynon suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

My sister completed her conveyancing in Abercynon in 2005. She has got married, widowed and in recent months got married again. She wishes to market the property in a few weeks. I believe she will just be asked to supply copies of her marriage papers to the lawyer however she is anxious it will frustrate the sale of the property. Should she instruct a conveyancing practitioner to update the Land Registry documents for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register as long as you have the evidence required to demonstrate how the name change resulted.
Any buyer’s conveyancing practitioner will examine the title details and need evidence by way of proof of the name change for instance marriage documentation.
