I am purchasing a terraced house in Rogerstone. Can I do my own conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Rogerstone you will have to appoint a solicitor on your bank's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Rogerstone.
Me and my brother have a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Rogerstone. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Rogerstone and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
Are there any apps to assist me to identify a Rogerstone solicitor on the Chelsea Building Society conveyancing panel? I drive a motor bike and am prepared to travel upto 25kilometers to meet the lawyer.

My mum and dad are encountering difficulties in finding their Rogerstone land registry title on the website. They recall that back in the 70’s when they acquired the bungalow there were complications concerning the post code not being recognised in some systems.
The vast majority of residences in Rogerstone should show up. Have you tried a search to simply the postcode. Ordinarily it should identify all the premises inside the postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The address could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title papers which could be with your parent’s lender.
