Would the conveyancing practitioners that are recommend carry out auction conveyancing in Roath?
We know of a few niche practitioners we can put you in touch with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Roath is just one of hundreds of locations where our lawyers are based.
We are purchasing a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Roath who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Roath.
I am assisting my aunt sell her property in Roath. Will the conveyancing solicitor order an energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?
Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments was left as a required part of selling a house. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned in advance of the property being marketed. It is not as aspect of the sale process that lawyers ordinarily organise. If you are using a Roath conveyancing solicitor they might be willing to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with reputable Roath assessors
I am expecting a AIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Roath solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Roath solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. I assume I don't need a Roath conveyancing practitioner on the Bank of Ireland panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Bank of Ireland mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Bank of Ireland mortgage from the register. Bank of Ireland, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Bank of Ireland has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Bank of Ireland has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Roath ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to grant a loan on such a house.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Roath. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
My partner has urged me to instruct his conveyancers in Roath. Should I find my own property lawyer?
Much as we are happy to recommend a Roath conveyancing lawyer the best way to find a conveyancing practitioner is to seek recommendations from friends or family who have actually experience in using the firm you're are thinking of instructing.
