I own a renovated Victorian house in Capel Curig. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and TSB. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. 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 Capel Curig and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
How does conveyancing in Capel Curig differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Capel Curig approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Capel Curig tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Capel Curig or who has acted in the same development.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Capel Curig. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently received a yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as normal because all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
