I am acquiring a house for cash in Dyserth. I have been living for the last 20 years in Dyserth. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a home loan, then almost all of the Dyserth conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it will be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. On occasion properties with no practical issues can still show up unexpected search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Dyserth should be able to give you some practical advice here.
I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Dyserth but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Dyserth and has limited impact for conveyancing in Dyserth but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.
Do commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that may impact a commercial estate in Dyserth?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Dyserth will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Dyserth. The report sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Dyserth.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Dyserth it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately may cause delays to Dyserth commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not carried out for residential conveyancing in Dyserth.
How does conveyancing in Dyserth differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Dyserth come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in Dyserth usually buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Dyserth or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Dyserth before retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to issue a loan on this type of property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Dyserth. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Dyserth especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Dyserth.
I have been advised by a number of property agents in Dyserth to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your services over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t make any commission for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
