Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Cilcain. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
RBS have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a apartment in Cilcain has been agreed to, now what?
Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up RBS or the financial adviser and finalise any relevant paperwork. RBS will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. RBS will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Cilcain.
Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are the primary reason for hinderance in Cilcain house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Cilcain.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Cilcain is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Cilcain are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cilcain you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cilcain may determine 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.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Cilcain with the purpose of expediting the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Cilcain can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ solicitors. If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Cilcain leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring calls for a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such alterations. Should you dont have the consents to hand you should not communicate with the landlord without contacting your solicitor first. A minority of Cilcain leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors.
