A colleague recommended that where I am buying in Pencoed I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard Pencoed conveyancing searches.

How does conveyancing in Pencoed differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Pencoed contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Pencoed typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pencoed or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Pencoed is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Pencoed are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Pencoed you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pencoed may ascertain 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 property.
