I am purchasing a house for cash in Ruthin. I have been living for the last 20 years in Ruthin. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the Ruthin conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to take that path of guidance. One thing to consider; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches determine. Sometimes premises with apparent issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Ruthin should be able to give you some constructive guidance here.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Ruthin 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor will know precisely where to find all the relevant paperwork so you may buy or sell your property without a hitch. If duplicates are not available, your conveyancer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on your property.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Ruthin I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Ruthin suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Ruthin. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as usual given that all rents and maintenance charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Ruthin, conveyancing was carried out 9 years ago.

With just 58 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £22,800 and £26,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
