Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Powys

After what seems like an age a mortgage offer from Nationwide for the remortgage of my 4 room flat is to be issued any day now. Could you put forward a low cost conveyancing lawyer in Powys?

You have come to the wrong place to search for cut-price fees for conveyancing in Powys. Our goal is to offer excellent value conveyancing but we do not work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint brokers seducing you with ninety nine pound conveyancing in Powys. At best, in deciding on cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst it will result in you invoiced for additional fees and still not end up with the service expected.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Powys?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Powys. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Powys I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Powys in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Powys. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Powys - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I bought a leasehold flat in Powys, conveyancing having been completed in 1997. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Powys with an extended lease are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2082

With 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £14,300 and £16,400 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

Been reading online that Powys solicitors are more costly than licensed conveyancers in Powys to use when purchasing a house. So is it better if I use a conveyancer or a solicitor if I am purchasing for my home move in Powys.

When it comes to conveyancing in Powys the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
