It is a dozen years since I bought my house in Ebbw Vale. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Ebbw Vale relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Ebbw Vale. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Ebbw Vale I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ebbw Vale suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
