Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aberbargoed

I am in the market for a reasonably priced conveyancer. Should I go for for a web based conveyancer rather than a local Aberbargoed conveyancing solicitor?

Established third party relationships are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing lawyers. Aberbargoed law firms benefit from long term relationships with lenders and selling, local authorities, surveyors and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Having years of knowledge of the local area is an advantage.

I am buying a house for cash in Aberbargoed. I have resided for the previous twelve years in Aberbargoed. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a home loan, then almost all of the Aberbargoed conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to take that path of guidance. One thing to consider; if you are likely to sell the house at a future date, it will likely be be of importance to your prospective buyer what the searches reveal. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Aberbargoed should provide you some sensible guidance in this regard.

I am being advised by my conveyancer that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Aberbargoed conveyancing?

The appropriate level of missing deeds indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Aberbargoed on 26/11/2020, valuation was booked 3 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Are UBS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have instructed a Aberbargoed property lawyer having checked that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Aberbargoed surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Aberbargoed for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Aberbargoed conveyancing specialists.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Aberbargoed I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Aberbargoed 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 home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am selling a house in Cardiff but I am based in Aberbargoed. My solicitor (approximately 250 kilometers awayrequires that I sign a stat dec prior to completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Aberbargoed to attest this legal document for me?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Aberbargoed based
