Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Henllan is more expensive?
In short, leasehold conveyancing in Henllan and elsewhere usually requires additional hours of investigation compared to freehold transactions. This includes lease investigation, liaising with the landlord concerning the service of appropriate notices, procuring 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 – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first granted.
I am refinancing my apartment in Henllan, does my lawyer have to be on the Yorkshire BS Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, but Yorkshire BS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.
