Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Carmarthen

I chose a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in Carmarthen today. Reviewing the official terms of business I seeI am responsible for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or instruct a web based solicitor practice who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Carmarthen?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to neutralise those transactions that do not proceed. Dont forget that these deals rarely cover outlay e.g. Carmarthen conveyancing search costs.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Kent Reliance Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Carmarthen?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

My husband and I are 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Carmarthen. I am am extremely disappointed with the level of service. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?

They would have to be very poor to suggest replacing them. Has your loan offer been generated? If so you need to make them aware of the new contact details and get the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. The solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid escalating costs and complications. That should be your first question of the new lawyers.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Carmarthen conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Carmarthen conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you make enquires with several firms including non Carmarthen conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be helpful:

    What volume of lease extensions has the firm completed in Carmarthen in the last 12 months? What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing?

I am the registered owner of a basement flat in Carmarthen, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Carmarthen with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2090

You have 68 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
