I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years built) in Mynydd Isa. 95% of the properties are already disposed of. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Mynydd Isa?
Conveyancing Searches are a critical link in the Mynydd Isa conveyancing process. There are a large number of companies conducting Mynydd Isa conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are generally termed personal search providers and they produce, not surprisingly, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their information from the local authoritative source.
It is 10 years ago since I bought my property in Mynydd Isa. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be kept by the lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Mynydd Isa relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am looking at a couple of apartments in Mynydd Isa both have approximately fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Mynydd Isa is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it adversely affects the salability of the property. The majority of purchasers and mortgage companies, leases with under 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Mynydd Isa conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

You have 61 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £18,100 and £20,800 as well as professional fees.
The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
The lawyers conducting our conveyancing in Mynydd Isa has sent documents to review that indicate that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not currently recorded at the Land Registry?
Much of the property in Mynydd Isa is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Plenty of Mynydd Isa conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with this type of conveyancing but where uncertainty prevails the prevailing recommendation presently appears to be for the vendor’s solicitor to register it first and then deal with the dispose of the property to the purchaser - this undoubtedly result in a significant delay.
