Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rhyl

Do I choose a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Rhyl?

There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Rhyl and Solicitor firms in Rhyl who provide Conveyancing services It is important to make clear that the two are regulated professionals specialising in the legal aspects of the home buying process. They may both also conduct associated property related work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.

I am expecting a OIP from HSBC this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Rhyl solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Rhyl solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Rhyl conveyancer on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Clydesdale mortgage has been paid off.

How does conveyancing in Rhyl differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Rhyl come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Rhyl usually buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Rhyl or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Rhyl I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Rhyl for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Rhyl. I've stumble upon a web site which appears to be the ideal solution If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of apartments in Rhyl both have in the region of fifty years left on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There are plenty of short leases in Rhyl. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.

Rhyl Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    You should be aware if it is no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the flat. Check with your mortgage company that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth discovering how much this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would be required to have owned the residence for 24 months in order to be legally able to extend the lease. This information is useful as a) areas could result in problems for the block as the communal areas may start to deteriorate if maintenance remain unpaid b) if the leasehold owners have a dispute with the managing agents you will wish to have all the details Be sure to find out if there are any onerous prohibitions in the lease. For example some leases prohibit pets being allowed in in a block in Rhyl. If you love the propertyin Rhyl however your dog can’t move with you then you will be presented with a hard decision.

Much to my surprise my solicitor in Rhyl has requested from me identification documents asserting that this forms part of his retainer as a solicitor on the lender Solicitor panel. Can you confirm whether this is the case?

Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the lender. This is not specific to conveyancing in Rhyl
