Would the conveyancing practitioners that you recommend conduct right to buy conveyancing in Cardiff?

My wife and I own a semi-detached Victorian property in Cardiff. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Leeds Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Cardiff and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

I'm buying my first flat in Cardiff with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the extras as it would impact my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I was pointed in your direction by numerous property agents in Cardiff to select a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over another?

We refuse to give any commission for directing people to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My uncle has recommend that I use his lawyers for conveyancing in Cardiff. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Cardiff conveyancing lawyer the best way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to get recommendations from friends or family who have previously instructed the firm you're contemplating using.

What type of property do your Cardiff conveyancing estimates apply to?

Our conveyancing quotes are only relevant to standard residential property in England & Wales. Should you have any different requirements such as industrial or agricultural property or commercial conveyancing in Cardiff please contact us to discuss your requirements .
