A friend recommended that if I am purchasing in Morriston I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
This is a search is occasionally included in the estimate for your Morriston conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Morriston around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Morriston Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Morriston.
five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Morriston took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 asset 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.
I decided to have a survey done on a property in Morriston in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor advised that some lenders will not issue a loan on a flying freehold premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can check via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Morriston. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Morriston to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
I was recommended by a number of selling agents in Morriston to locate a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your site rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to offer any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
As co-executor for the estate of my father I am disposing of a house in Cardiff but I am based in Morriston. My lawyer (based 260 kilometers from mehas requested that I execute a statutory declaration ahead of the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Morriston to attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you should not need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Morriston based
