We hired a high street solicitor for our conveyancing in Merthyr Tydfil last week. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I seewe are responsible for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or appoint a web based firm advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Merthyr Tydfil?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise those transactions that fail to complete. Please beware that these deals tend not to cover expenditure such as Merthyr Tydfil conveyancing search expenses.

Our conveyancer has discovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the property we are buying in Merthyr Tydfil. The other side have put forward title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our solicitor says that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?

Is it the case that all Merthyr Tydfil conveyancing solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Barclays approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Merthyr Tydfil. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Merthyr Tydfil conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

My offer was accepted on an apartment in Merthyr Tydfil on 22/3/2024, valuation was booked five days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Co-operative and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Are Co-operative entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Merthyr Tydfil I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Merthyr Tydfil suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
