We instructed a high street firm for my conveyancing in Caerphilly today. Reviewing the Ts and Cs I seeI am responsible for costs even if the dealdoes not happen. Should I go with them or choose an internet firm who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Caerphilly?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to counteract the conveyances that abort. You should be mindful that such deals tend not to cover disbursements for instance Caerphilly conveyancing search fees.
We previously chose conveyancers locally in Caerphilly on the Yorkshire BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional charge for dealing with the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Yorkshire BS?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Caerphilly solicitor. Numerous firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.
We were going to get a OIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Caerphilly solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Caerphilly solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Nottingham. I assume I don't need a Caerphilly lawyer on the Nottingham panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Nottingham mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Nottingham mortgage from the register. Nottingham, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Nottingham has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nottingham has instructed the Land Registry to do so

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Caerphilly. Before I get started I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Caerphilly - 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.
