AssumingI was to purchase a straightforward propertyin Holt mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Holt?
Any savings you would achieve will be limited to the costs for searches. The conveyancer is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, correspond with your sellers solicitor, stamp duty return, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage however it won't be a lot.
I am considering applying for a Principality mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Holt with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Principality ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Principality conveyancing panel, but Principality would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Holt 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware exactly where to find all the appropriate documentation so you may buy or sell your house without any difficulty. If duplicates can’t be found, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on the property.
I opted to have a survey completed on a house in Holt before appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold house.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business property in Holt and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides security of tenure to commercial lessees, giving them the right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

Are there frequently found deficiencies that you see in leases for Holt properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Holt is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can result in certain clauses are missing. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Repairing obligations to or maintain parts of the premises A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.
A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Birmingham Midshires, The Mortgage Works, and Clydesdale 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 is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to pull out.

Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
