Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Denbighshire is more expensive?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Denbighshire and elsewhere usually requires more hours of investigation compared to freehold transactions. This includes lease investigation, liaising with the landlord about serving applicable notices, securing current service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first granted.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Denbighshire. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Principality be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Principality your lawyer must check the formal requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Principality where a lease fails to comply with these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Denbighshire.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nationwide. Is it usual for Nationwide to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Denbighshire is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nationwide have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Me and my brother own a semi-detached Victorian house in Denbighshire. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Birmingham Midshires. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Birmingham Midshires to clarify?
You should assess 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Denbighshire and other locations in 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 purchasers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
