My IFA has asked me for my Abertridwr law firm’s panel reference for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I discover this. I have tried my local Abertridwr branch but they have not responded to me.
You are best placed to get this information from your Abertridwr property lawyer . They keep a central record lender panel numbers.
AssumingI were to acquire a straightforward propertyin Abertridwr for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Abertridwr?
The sole reduction in fees you would make on is the costs for searches. The property lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your sellers lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Abertridwr?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Abertridwr. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Abertridwr is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Abertridwr are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Abertridwr you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Abertridwr may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
