Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Flintshire

I am purchasing a property mortgage free in Flintshire. I have lived for the previous dozen years in Flintshire. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Flintshire conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to take that path of advice. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to dispose of the house in the future, it will be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. On occasion premises with no practical issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Flintshire should be able to give you some constructive guidance in this regard.

I am assisting my mother sell her flat in Flintshire. Will the solicitor arrange an EPC or should I organise this?

Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments was kept a compulsory element of moving house. An energy assessment must be to hand in advance of the property being put on the market. It is not something that conveyancers normally arrange. If you are instructing a Flintshire conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established local energy assessors

I am planning to move house in September. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Flintshire. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this page.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the estate agent however this should only happen once the previous owners lawyers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Flintshire or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Flintshire.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Flintshire. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Flintshire conveyancer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

What makes your site different to other internet conveyancing brokers for conveyancing in Flintshire?

At this site get a fixed fee quote via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that has a full understanding of the nuances for your conveyancing in Flintshire. As opposed to estate agents and brokerage sites we do not have referral arrangements with solicitors. A large number of agents and online brokers 'recommend' solicitors paying the highest commission, as opposed to the best value conveyancing in Flintshire

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the agent advised that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct their preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Flintshire

We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Flintshire conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.

Helen (my wife) and I may need to sub-let our Flintshire ground floor flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Flintshire conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Flintshire do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Flintshire, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2012. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Flintshire with over 90 years remaining are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2087

With just 68 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
