We see that you have a search directory listing solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a commission if I instruct them for our conveyancing in Longford?

We're in Longford, First timers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Yorkshire BS , and our solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I have been told that property searches are the main reason for stalling in Longford conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Longford.

Due to sign contracts shortly on a studio apartment in Longford. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they report fully tomorrow. What should I be looking out for?
The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Longford should include some of the following:
Ground rent - how much and when you need to pay, and also know whether this is subject to change specifics of the parties to the lease, for instance these could be the lessee, superior lessor, freeholder Does the lease require carpeting throughout thus preventing wood flooring? Whether the lease restricts you from letting out the flat, or having a home office for business Defining your rights in relation to common areas in the block.E.G., does the lease include a right of way over an accessway or staircase?
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without getting anywhere. Can one make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Longford conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the price.
