I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years built) in Llanymynech. The vast majority the properties have already been occupied. Is it really necessary to order local searches for my conveyancing in Llanymynech?
You are taking a significant risk in refusing to carrying out Llanymynech conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would seriously advise in no uncertain terms that your conveyancer conducts them. If time pressures and driving down costs are top of your issues you should discuss with your lawyer about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you
I'm purchasing my first flat in Llanymynech with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

There are plenty of short leases in Llanymynech. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the value of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is advisable to extend the lease term. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.

Some weeks ago I was informed by my mortgage company that their panel solicitors operate no move no fee basis for conveyancing in Llanymynech. My purchase aborted and now the conveyancers have invoiced for search fees! They are claiming that the fees are independent!
Llanymynech conveyancing search fees are disbursements not solicitors fees as these are paid to independent parties.
