I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Wrexham. 95% of the appartments are already occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Wrexham?

If you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your lender will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Wrexham conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. No doubt your conveyancer, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you may need to instruct a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Wrexham.

As someone unfamiliar with the Wrexham conveyancing process what is your top tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Wrexham

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Wrexham and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process.

Co-operative don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Co-operative list.

I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Wrexham. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently had a yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the service charge as usual as all rents and maintenance payments should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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 purchased a split level flat in Wrexham, conveyancing having been completed in 1997. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Wrexham with a long lease are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2097

With just 75 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
