Please help - my lawyer says that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Llantwit Major?

I am selling our home in Llantwit Major and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Llantwit Major. Having lived in Llantwit Major for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Llantwit Major concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Llantwit Major I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Llantwit Major suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Llantwit Major from the perspective of saving time on the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Llantwit Major can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ solicitors.
  • If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where a dispute is unsettled. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as historic rather than unsettled. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a replacement share certificate can be a lengthy formality and slows down many a Llantwit Major conveyancing transaction. Where a reissued share certificate is required, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this as soon as possible. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this by asking your lawyers. A buyer’s conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is less than 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Llantwit Major state that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such works. If you dont have the paperwork to hand you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your conveyancer first.
