Last May we completed a house move in Penylan. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been ordered for conveyancing in Penylan?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Penylan. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a form called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers turns out to be inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Penylan.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Penylan is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

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 premises.
I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Penylan. I happened to discover a site which looks to be the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all formalities completed via web that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
Is there a reason that Penylan conveyancing charges are more expensive for leasehold and freehold properties?
When acquiring a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
