My home in Abertillery is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the property lawyer need to be required to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.
The deeds to our house can not be found. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Abertillery 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
Gone are the days when you need to have the physical official documentation to prove you are the registered proprietor of land or property, given that the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.
What makes your site different to alternative online quote calculators when it comes to conveyancing in Abertillery?
At this site secure a fixed fee costs illustration via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that appreciates the issues of your conveyancing in Abertillery. As opposed to estate agents and brokerage sites we do not operate commission deals with solicitors. Some agents and online brokers 'recommend' solicitors that pays the highest commission, not the best value conveyancing in Abertillery
My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent told us that the vendor will only proceed if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Abertillery
We suspect that the owner is not behind this ultimatum. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Abertillery conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give the estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.
Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Abertillery 1st floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Abertillery conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Notwithstanding that your previous Abertillery conveyancing lawyer is not around you can check your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the property. The rule is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you must obtain consent from your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining consent. The consent should not be unreasonably turned down. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.

Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
