I have recentlyfound out that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Flint for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Flint conveyancing specialists.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Flint in advance of appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not grant a loan on such a property.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Flint

It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Flint conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Flint ground floor flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Flint conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Flint do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I own a garden flat in Flint, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Flint with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2080

With 58 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £22,800 and £26,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Flint?

Conveyancing - in Flint or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects before you move in.
