I am planning to acquire a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Llanarth who is on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing. Can you recommend a local solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for The Mortgage Works in certain locations such as Llanarth. We dont recommend any particular firm.
It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Llanarth took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Llanarth before instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend not issue a mortgage on this type of home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can look into this further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Llanarth. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Llanarth especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Llanarth.
We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct their chosen solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Llanarth
It is highly unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your preferred Llanarth conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by HQ.
Can you offer any advice when it comes to finding a Llanarth conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?
When appointing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Llanarth conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non Llanarth conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be helpful:
How familiar is the firm with lease extension legislation? Can they put you in touch with clients in Llanarth who can give a testimonial?

If a Llanarth lease has fewer than 80 years it will affect the salability of the property. Check with your lender that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term.
