Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Pontyclun is more expensive?
The conveyancing fees for a leasehold property in Pontyclun is inevitably more expensive when contrasted to a freehold residence. This is due to the supplemental time necessary in liaising with the landlord and management company to collate the evidence concerning whether the rent and service fee have been cleared and whether there are any large sums expected to be spent in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.
We are downsizing from our house in Pontyclun and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Pontyclun conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Pontyclun. Having lived in Pontyclun for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
