It is is a decade since I bought my property in Flintshire. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I can't track down the deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they could be archived with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Flintshire relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

Last October I purchased a leasehold flat in Flintshire. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
