Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Margam

I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Margam yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Margam and has limited impact for conveyancing in Margam 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 establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.

In researching consumer advice sites for a high-quality lawyer in Margam, most say that I must instruct a CQS accredited solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a kitemark for residential conveyancing practices issued by the Law Society. Membership achievement establishes a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon: * the integrity of the senior responsible officer and other key conveyancing staff * the firm's adherence to good practice management standards * compliance with best practice conveyancing processes through the scheme protocol It includes numerous partnerships who handle conveyancing in Margam.

I'm buying a new build house in Margam with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my solicitor about this extras as it could put at risk my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Margam ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not grant a loan on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. If you contact us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Margam. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Margam especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Margam.

Am I best advised to appoint a Margam conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am buying? An old friend can execute the legal work however they are based 300miles away.

The benefit of a high street Margam conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Margam know how is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were impressed that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Margam conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

My mother and father are unable to locate their Margam land registry title on the site. They have a vague memory back in the 60’s when they acquired the property there were complications concerning the address not being recognised in some systems.

Nearly all premises in Margam should appear. Have you limited your search with simply the postcode. Normally it will mention all the properties within the postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought 50 years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The property could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title deeds which may be with your parent’s mortgage company.
