My offer on a property in Cilfynydd has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Cilfynydd. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Principality going?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Cilfynydd conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their lawyer to move forward with searches.

I bought my apartment on 1 November and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Cilfynydd expressed confidence that it should be recorded inside ten days. Are titles in Cilfynydd particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Cilfynydd registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration takes place after the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Cilfynydd before instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to issue a loan on this type of property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can investigate further via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Cilfynydd. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Cilfynydd to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

What are the frequently found deficiencies that you witness in leases for Cilfynydd properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Cilfynydd is not unique. All leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can result in certain provisions are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Insurance obligations Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.

You will have a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. National Westminster Bank, Leeds Building Society, and Platform Home Loans Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to withdraw.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Cilfynydd, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Cilfynydd with a long lease are worth £179,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2081

With only 57 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £26,600 and £30,800 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.

I've found a house that appears to be perfect, at a reasonable price which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently discovered that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues purchasing a leasehold house in Cilfynydd. Conveyancing solicitors have not yet been appointed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Cilfynydd ?

Most houses in Cilfynydd are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area can assist with the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Cilfynydd so you should seriously consider shopping around for a Cilfynydd conveyancing practitioner and be sure that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses.

The lease comes with conditions for example obtaining the landlord’spermission to conduct alterations. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the house is located on an estate. Your conveyancer should report to you on the legal implications.
