Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in St Asaph. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?
Given that you are now to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should find a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of urgency as you now have a tight a drop dead date to complete the deal. Every auction property should have a bespoke legal pack. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches.

I currently have a mortgage with Clydesdale for my property in St Asaph. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Clydesdale?
You must advise Clydesdale before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Clydesdale will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Clydesdale directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel lawyer.
How does conveyancing in St Asaph differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in St Asaph come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in St Asaph usually acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 St Asaph or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in St Asaph I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in St Asaph for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
I was pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in St Asaph to choose a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your lawyers ahead of another?
We refuse to make any referral fee for sending work our way. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
