I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Bassaleg. Almost all the appartments have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Bassaleg?
If you getting a mortgage, your mortgage company will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Bassaleg conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to switch to an alternative solicitor for your conveyancing in Bassaleg.

I am considering applying for a Aldermore mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Bassaleg with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Aldermore will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Bassaleg is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Bassaleg are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bassaleg you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bassaleg 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.
