At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Llantwit Fardre and do I need to be at the conveyancers branch?
If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Llantwit Fardre you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend supply a national conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract simply enables the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Llantwit Fardre)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am purchasing my first flat in Llantwit Fardre with a mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about this deal as it may adversely affect my loan with Platform Home Loans Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Llantwit Fardre I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Llantwit Fardre for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan that many years will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Llantwit Fardre. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
