My partner and I are buying a flat in Llantrisant. My lawyer has never been on on the bank approved list. Can I still use my Llantrisant conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender list of approved lawyers?
You have a number of alternatives available to you here
- Proceed with your existing Llantrisant conveyancer but your lender will no doubt use a property lawyer on their approved list. This will result in additional fees and likely frustration.
- Get a fresh property lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, making sure they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to do everything possible to join the bank’s panel of solicitors
I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (seven years old) in Llantrisant. Almost all the appartments are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the local searches for my conveyancing in Llantrisant?
Conveyancing Searches are a central link in the Llantrisant conveyancing process. There are a large number of companies conducting Llantrisant conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are generally termed personal search companies due to them carrying out, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their information from the local authority.
I purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Llantrisant. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Llantrisant and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
I am buying a new build flat in Llantrisant. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Llantrisant
Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
