I opted for a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Merthyr Tydfil last week. Reviewing the fine print it is apparent thatI am on the hook for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and instruct a web based conveyancing brokerage advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Merthyr Tydfil?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to cover those transactions that do not proceed. Also remember that these deals tend not to protect you from expenses for instance Merthyr Tydfil conveyancing search charges.
IfI were to purchase a simple residential propertyin Merthyr Tydfil for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Merthyr Tydfil?
The sole reduction in fees you would achieve is the Merthyr Tydfil conveyancing searches. The lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors property lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a mortgage however it will not be a lot.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Merthyr Tydfil I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Merthyr Tydfil suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Merthyr Tydfil. Before diving in I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Merthyr Tydfil - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
