My best friend’s step-father is a conveyancer. I anticipate that I'll be able to get friends and family pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what kind of costs should I be expecting for conveyancing in Pontcanna?
It’s wise to get 3 or more like-for-like conveyancing quotes. Make use of our comparison tool on this page. You will notice that prices do contrast greatly but service levels do are distinct between law firms as is true with most professions.
I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must be out of my rented flat in Pontcanna by 19/11/2020. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in three weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
Generally one should not serve notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your solicitor and request that they seek the assistance the owners side, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work to achieve
When does exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Pontcanna and do I need to attend the lawyers branch?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Pontcanna you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Pontcanna)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Pontcanna I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pontcanna in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
I was advised by a number of selling agents in Pontcanna to locate a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your services ahead of another?
We refuse to make any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
