Having invested time reading mumsnet.com for a conveyancing lawyer in Pontypridd, most post that I should instruct a CQS accredited solicitor. What is CQS?
The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a kitemark for residential conveyancing practices issued by the Law Society. Membership achievement establishes a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon: * the integrity of the senior responsible officer and other key conveyancing staff * the firm's adherence to good practice management standards * adherence to best practice conveyancing procedures through the scheme protocol the standard covers numerous companies who perform conveyancing in Pontypridd.
My wife and I are selling our house in Pontypridd and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Pontypridd lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Pontypridd. Having lived in Pontypridd for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should 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 health insurance to cover that same illness)
I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Pontypridd. I happened to land on a site which looks to be the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all the legals done via email that would be ideal. Should I 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?
I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of maisonettes in Pontypridd both have about forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
A lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is generally wise to extend the lease term. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We recommend you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Pontypridd - Examples of Questions you should ask before buying
How much is the yearly maintenance fee and ground rent? What is the name of the managing agents? How is the lease structured?
Builders have put forward a conveyancing practitioner and I've obtained an estimate from them. They are nearly two hundred pounds less expensive than my family Pontypridd conveyancing practitioner. Should I use them?
Housebuilders normally have panels of property lawyers who are quick and who know the seller’s paperwork and conveyancing practitioner. As many developers offer an incentive to use their approved conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder will not recommend a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they demand an exchange within a tight time frame. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested conveyancing practitioner is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests at the risk of alienating the sellers. Where you have concerns that this may be the situation you should stick with your high street Pontypridd property lawyer.
