I am purchasing a property in Llandaff North. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Barclays be concerned?
Given that your lender is Barclays your lawyer must check the formal instructions outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The CML Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Barclays where a lease does not meet these provisions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Llandaff North.
My fiancee and I are in the throws of looking at houses in Llandaff North and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a solicitor appointed at this stage? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Barclays.
You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with Barclays, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Llandaff North solicitor on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so

How does conveyancing in Llandaff North differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Llandaff North approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Llandaff North usually purchase the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Llandaff North or who has acted in the same development.
I am hoping to sell my garage which is on a separate legal title with the land registry and hope to get 30k, to clear debts. There is a mortgage with Santander. Please can you suggest an inexpensive lawyer as the usual £500-600 eats in the return somewhat. Although I live in Llandaff North I dont have to instruct a Llandaff North conveyancer.
