I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Creigiau. 95% of the appartments have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Creigiau?
If you getting a mortgage, your mortgage company will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Creigiau conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. 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 choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or it may be necessary to find a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Creigiau.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Creigiau is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Creigiau are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Creigiau you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Creigiau 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.
