What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Rudry
There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Rudry and Solicitor partnerships in Rudry to choose from It is important to make clear that the two are regulated professionals specialising in the legal work in the home buying process. The two can deal with other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, enfranchisement and transfer of equity conveyancing.
This question may be naive but I am new to the process as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Rudry. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Rudry?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Rudry conveyancer on the UBS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your UBS 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 UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, 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 UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
My wife and I are intent on selling our property in Rudry and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Rudry lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Rudry. We have lived in Rudry for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. 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)
How does conveyancing in Rudry differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Rudry contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Rudry usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Rudry or who has acted in the same development.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial premises in Rudry and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act provides protection to business leaseholders, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a new tenancy and continue in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Rudry is one of our hundreds of locations in which the firms we work with are based
My cousin has suggested that I use his conveyancers in Rudry. Should I use them?
