What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Pontcanna

There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Pontcanna and Solicitor practices in Pontcanna who provide Conveyancing services We would stress that the two are supervised by regulatory bodies with both specialising in the legal work in transferring property. They may both also handle associated property related work such as remortgage conveyancing, enfranchisement and transfer of equity conveyancing.

I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Pontcanna. The Pontcanna property was put into my name in January. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this clause is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

We expect to receive a AIP from Barclays this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any Pontcanna solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Pontcanna solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
