Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Baglan?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Baglan your solicitor will request that you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Generally this is called for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any down payment is as part of the purchase price then this will be required shortly ahead of exchange of contracts. Any further balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer a couple of days prior to the day of completion.
The Baglan conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my purchase in Baglan have suddenly shut down. I only went with them because I had to have a firm on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and my previous Baglan lawyer was not. I paid them £170 on account. What are my options?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to help.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Baglan I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Baglan in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
