My uncle advised me that in purchasing a property in Bagillt there may be a number of restrictions preventing external alterations to the property. Is this right?
We are aware of a number of properties in Bagillt which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to perform external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Bagillt should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
Please help - my lawyer advises that missing deeds insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Bagillt conveyancing?
The appropriate level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Santander and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Bagillt building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Bagillt conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the lender approved list, she or he must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Bagillt took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I'm buying my first flat in Bagillt benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

They will also have local insight which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were content that should surpass using an unknown Bagillt conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Bagillt based.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Bagillt. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Bagillt - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
