I am expecting a mortgage offer from Lloyds. I hope to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Ruthin. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel allow for conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Lloyds approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Are the Ruthin conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Skipton conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Skipton?
Ruthin conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Skipton directly.
I need some expedited conveyancing in Ruthin as I am faced with an ultimatum to exchange contracts in less than one month. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?
As you are are a cash purchaser you are at free not to do searches although no solicitor would advise that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Ruthin the following are examples of issues that can crop up and therefore impact market value: Enforcement Actions, Overdue Fees, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...
I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Ruthin in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Ruthin. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Ruthin to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
I own a leasehold house in Ruthin. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Ruthin who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to instruct a Ruthin conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
I own a 1st floor flat in Ruthin, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2002. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension?

With just 59 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £20,900 and £24,200 as well as professional fees.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
