Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rumney

My brother and I have recently bought a house in Rumney. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Rumney?

The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Rumney. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner fills in a document referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information ends up being incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Rumney.

We are buying a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Rumney who is on the Barclays solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

There is lots of information on this site concerning conveyancing in Rumney but can you isolate your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Rumney

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Rumney conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Do I find a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Rumney?

Two types of professional can carry out conveyancing in Rumney namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. Both professionals provide the legal services that required to complete the sale or purchase of property. Both are obliged to perform Rumney conveyancing to the same standards and guidelines so you may be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly carried out and that all necessary steps will be accurately followed.

I am the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Rumney. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in July. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in July. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

How does conveyancing in Rumney differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Rumney approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Rumney 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Rumney or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a two bedroom apartment in Rumney I would like to talk to a conveyancer concerning thehouse move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer who will be carrying out your conveyancing in Rumney.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a matter reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for residential conveyancing in Rumney should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Rumney conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Rumney conveyancing practice) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you talk with several firms including non Rumney conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be helpful:

    Can they put you in touch with clients in Rumney who can give a testimonial?

I invested in buying a studio flat in Rumney, conveyancing formalities finalised 3 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Rumney with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2102

You have 80 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
