Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Abergele costs more?
In short, leasehold conveyancing in Abergele and Conwy usually involve additional due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes reviewing the lease, corresponding with the landlord concerning serving appropriate notices, procuring up-to-date service charge and management information, procuring the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first entered into.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Abergele. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office.

I have todayfound out that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Abergele for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Abergele conveyancing specialists.
I have just started marketing my ground floor flat in Abergele. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as normal as all ground rent and service charges will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
