I am acquiring an apartment in Radyr. My lawyer has never been on on the lender solicitor list. Am I still permitted to use my Radyr conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank panel?
One will need to use a lawyer to complete the legal work required when you take out a mortgage to purchase your property. The conveyancer will carry out all the appropriate due diligence on the property, ensuring that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place. One can select a Radyr property lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancer selected is not on the mortgage company approved list additional costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so if your solicitor has not in the past applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
Are the BSA intent on creating a search tool with a view to list law firms on the Melton Mowbray Building Society conveyancing panel for example in Radyr?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Radyr I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Radyr for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I've found a house that appears to meet my requirements, at a great price which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Radyr. Conveyancing advisers have are soon to be appointed. Will they explain the issues?
The majority of houses in Radyr are freehold and not leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local solicitor who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process.

I own a garden flat in Radyr, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension?
