Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Radyr

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Radyr is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?

That would most likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Radyr conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

My husband and I are acquiring a newly built flat in Radyr and my solicitor is advising me that she has to the lender to disclose incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts and my preference is not to prolong the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a lender 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.

It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Radyr. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been retained on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may be archived with the lawyers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Radyr relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Radyr I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Radyr suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I'm refinancing my current property to a buy to let loan with Godiva Mortgages Ltd and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a down payment on another house. The location we are talking about is Radyr. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and link together the conveyances?

Do use our comparison tool on this page to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both mortgage companies. On the basis that they are your lawyer should be able to connect the two transactions but you should talk with you solicitor and specify your desired outcome and requirements.

I own a leasehold house in Radyr. Conveyancing and HSBC Bank mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing solicitor in Radyr who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First contact HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Radyr conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I inherited a studio flat in Radyr, conveyancing having been completed in 2005. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Radyr with a long lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2094

You have 70 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
