We went with a Caergwrle based lawyer for our conveyancing in Caergwrle yesterday. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I seeI am responsible for fees even if the dealdoes not go ahead. Should I go with them or select a web based conveyancing brokerage advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Caergwrle?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to cover those conveyances that do not go ahead. Please beware that such deals rarely protect you from outlay for example Caergwrle conveyancing search expenses.
I have 70 years left on my lease and require a lease extension for my flat in Caergwrle. Conveyancing solicitors on the Virgin panel can deal with such extensions correct?
Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are getting a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Virgin have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 3/5/2021 the requirements read as follows :
Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Edwardian house in Caergwrle. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Caergwrle and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Caergwrle benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it may affect my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

I wish to rent out my leasehold flat in Caergwrle. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?
Notwithstanding that your previous Caergwrle conveyancing lawyer is no longer around you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the property. The rule is that if the lease is silent, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without prior consent. The consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If the lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.
