My flat in Llandyrnog is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does my conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently in recent years.
Will my solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Llandyrnog.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Llandyrnog. There are those who acquire a property in Llandyrnog, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Llandyrnog. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard question of the seller to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s lawyers may also order an enviro search. This should higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be carried out.

The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
