I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I require chancel insurance when acquiring a residence in Lisvane? or I am told that there is a law dating back centuries that means some owners of property living in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for repairs towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this appropriate for conveyancing in Lisvane?

Unless a prior acquisition of the premises took place after 12 October 2013 you may expect solicitors conducting conveyancing in Lisvane to continue to propose a a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

How does conveyancing in Lisvane differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Lisvane approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Lisvane usually purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Lisvane or who has acted in the same development.

The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to commercial leaseholders, granting the right to apply to court for a renewal lease and continue in occupation at the end of the lease term.

Are Lisvane conveyancing solicitors under an obligation to the Law Society to issue transparent conveyancing figures?

Contained within the Solicitors Code of Conduct are set rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their charges to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not intended as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, however, constitute the Law Society’s perspective of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Lisvane or further afield.
