Intending to buy a house in Rhuddlan. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

As to the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some buyers will apply for a home loan with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Rhuddlan.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Rhuddlan. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Rhuddlan - 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.
