I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Bargoed is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Bargoed are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bargoed 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 Bargoed may ascertain 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.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to be perfect, at a great figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have since found out that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are issues purchasing a house with a leasehold title in Bargoed. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?
Most houses in Bargoed are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Bargoed so you should seriously consider looking for a Bargoed conveyancing solicitor and check that they are used to transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a leaseholder you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the landlord’spermission to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the estate where the property is located on an estate. Your lawyer should advise you fully on all the issues.
I bought a split level flat in Bargoed, conveyancing formalities finalised 4 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar properties in Bargoed with a long lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2080
With 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £17,100 and £19,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
I am just shy of a 10% deposit on my house purchase in Bargoed , but I am anxious exchange. Do I have options?
One option is to try and agree a lower deposit. Many sellers will agree to a lesser deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last second
