Having sold my house in Taffs Well last August but my buyer keeps calling daily complaining that her conveyancer is waiting to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?
After completion of your house sale your lawyer should forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer must also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers lawyers. There are no post completion procedures unique to conveyancing in Taffs Well.

If you are using a Taffs Well conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable Taffs Well providers

I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Taffs Well. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just received a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you discharge the service charge as usual because all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until 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.
