Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Radyr who completed the legal work 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing costs illustration based on the same type of home move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of similar values with a loan from TSB. It looks as though am now being charged double. Stick with what I know or do I try and find an alternative conveyancer?

My partner and I are buying a new build duplex in Radyr and my conveyancer is informing me that she has to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to sign contracts and my preference is not to prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I have todaydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Radyr for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest way to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Radyr conveyancing specialists.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Radyr is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Radyr are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Radyr you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Radyr 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 residence.
As co-executor for the will of my grandfather I am disposing of a property in Swansea but reside in Radyr. My solicitor (based 300 miles awayhas requested that I sign a stat dec prior to the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Radyr who can attest this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Radyr based
