At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Lisvane and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Lisvane you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a national conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Lisvane)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
We are selling our home in Lisvane and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Lisvane. Having lived in Lisvane for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
My wife and I have a semi-detached Victorian property in Lisvane. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Aldermore. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Lisvane and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
