Your estate agent will want to know who your solicitors are (be sure the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Contact Clydesdale or your broker and finalise any outstanding documentation.

Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Clydesdale will send the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Pentwyn.

How does conveyancing in Pentwyn differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Pentwyn contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because house builders in Pentwyn usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pentwyn or who has acted in the same development.

I only have Sixty One years remaining on my flat in Pentwyn. I now want to extend my lease but my freeholder is absent. What are my options?
On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to find the lessor. For most situations an enquiry agent should be useful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document which can be used as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Pentwyn.
