Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Ystrad Mynach. I would like to know the reason why all Ystrad Mynach conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all bank panels?
Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies culling a number of firms off their official list of approved property lawyers .
It is is a decade since I acquired my property in Ystrad Mynach. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with your lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach?

An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Ystrad Mynach I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ystrad Mynach for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
