It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Llandegla. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the lender or they may still be with the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Llandegla relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
I am buying a property and the lawyer has referenced Chancel Repair for which the house could be obligated to pay given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has suggested insurance. Is this strictly necessary for conveyancing in Llandegla
Unless a previous purchase of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you can expect conveyancing practitioners delivering conveyancing in Llandegla to continue to propose a a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
How does conveyancing in Llandegla differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Llandegla come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Llandegla tend to acquire 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Llandegla or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Llandegla before instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may not issue a loan on a flying freehold house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Halifax. If you call us we can look into this further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Llandegla. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Llandegla especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Llandegla.
