I hired a high street firm for my conveyancing in Milford Haven yesterday. Looking through the Ts and Cs I noteI am liable for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to select an on-line conveyancing brokerage who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Milford Haven?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to neutralise those transactions that do not go ahead. Also remember that these promotions tend not to protect you from disbursements such as Milford Haven conveyancing search charges.
I am assisting my niece sell her house in Milford Haven. Does the conveyancer arrange an energy assessment or do I organise this?
After the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates remained a mandatory component of moving house. An energy assessment must be commissioned in advance of the property being placed on the market. It is not a task that conveyancers normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Milford Haven conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with reputable local assessors
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Milford Haven. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Milford Haven?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I'm the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Milford Haven. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation is principally there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Milford Haven is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Milford Haven are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Milford Haven you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Milford Haven may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
We are a fortnight into a freehold purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the local agent to do our conveyancing in Milford Haven. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A lawyer would need to be very bad to suggest changing them. Has your loan offer been sent? If so you need to make them aware of the replacement lawyer and get the mortgage documents are re-sent. The solicitor ideally needs to be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental charges and complications. So that should be your starting point.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Milford Haven, conveyancing formalities finalised 6 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in Milford Haven with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease terminates on 21st October 2099
With just 80 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
