Is the fact that my conveyancer in Llandegla is not on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his conveyancing?
That is most likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Llandegla conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.
How does conveyancing in Llandegla differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Llandegla come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Llandegla typically buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Llandegla or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Llandegla I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Llandegla in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Llandegla. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as you normally would because all rents and maintenance invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
