I am buying a new build apartment in Rogerstone. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Rogerstone is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Rogerstone are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Rogerstone you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rogerstone may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
My financial adviser has suggested using their conveyancer for our conveyancing in Rogerstone - Is it not simpler advisable to just instruct them?
This is not necessarily the case and you are at liberty to use whichever solicitor of your choosing for your Rogerstone home move. The solicitor put forward by an estate agent may not always be the best conveyancer, they may put forward their own conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancing practitioner and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
