I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Penyffordd. Almost all the appartments have already been sold. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Penyffordd?

Where you are obtaining a loan, your mortgage company will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Penyffordd conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to swap to an alternative solicitor for your conveyancing in Penyffordd.

My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Penyffordd. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?

Having exchanged you will need to retain a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of urgency as you will have a pending a drop dead date to complete the property. All auction property will have an associated legal pack. This will likely include most,if not all of the documents that your lawyer will need. If you have purchased leasehold premises the auction pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation specific to leasehold premises. You need to pass this on to the conveyancer instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Penyffordd. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Penyffordd?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Penyffordd. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £175. Not long after, the lawyer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the HSBC panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I am looking at a two maisonettes in Penyffordd which have in the region of 50 years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There are plenty of short leases in Penyffordd. The lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease shortens the saleability of the lease reduces and it becomes more costly to extend the lease. For this reason it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

I inherited a leasehold flat in Penyffordd, conveyancing formalities finalised 9 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable flats in Penyffordd with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease terminates on 21st October 2098

With just 75 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
