I can't travel far from Splott. Is there a reason why all Splott conveyancers are not on all lender panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. It led to banks and building societies removing less reputable firms from their books of approved conveyancing practitioners .
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Splott is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 62 years unexpired on my lease in Splott. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is absent. What should I do?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to locate the landlord. For most situations a specialist may be helpful to try and locate and to produce a report to be used as evidence that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Splott.
