Various internet forums that I have come across warn that are the primary cause of stalling in Kidwelly conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Kidwelly.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Kidwelly concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Kidwelly is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Kidwelly are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Kidwelly you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kidwelly may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Do I need to be suspicious by estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Kidwelly conveyancing company?

As with lots of service providers, often input from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may recommend conveyancers to select. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of lenders specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.

I own a leasehold house in Kidwelly. Conveyancing and Virgin Money mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing solicitor in Kidwelly who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First contact HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Kidwelly conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
