Please could you recommend a Chelsea Building Society accepted Roath conveyancing practice finish our house move within a very limited time frame? Would it be better to use a local Roath firm or an online firm?
We can recommend some very good Roath conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the high street in Roath. Visit two or three law practices and request to see a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Discuss your expectations together with the reasons and ask for a commitment on speed. Select the one that appears most efficient.
I am downsizing from our home in Roath and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Roath. Having lived in Roath for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)
About to purchase a new build apartment in Roath. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Roath
Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Roath I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Roath in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
Why do I have to supply my conveyancer with various items of ID ahead of starting selling or purchasing a property in Roath?
Roath solicitors are required by the Law Society, SRA, the Land Registry and current AML Regulations to certify that the have checked the identity of their clients. It is also sometimes a requirement of your bank if you are obtaining a mortgage. Furthermore they have to complete various forms, particularly those relating to Land Tax and need to have details such as your full names, national insurance number and date of birth.
