When reading consumer advice sites for a cheap lawyer in Skewen, most post that I should instruct a CQS kitemarked solicitor. What is CQS?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in buying or selling property, trusted by some of the UK's biggest mortgage companies. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Association of British Insurers (ABI). The scheme does not cover licenced conveyancers. Skewen is one of the numerous areas of the UK where there are CQS solicitors.

I purchased a semi-detached Victorian house in Skewen. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and TSB. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Skewen and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Skewen I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Skewen in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am disposing of a residence in Newport but I am based in Skewen. My lawyer (based 200 miles awayhas requested that I execute a stat dec before completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Skewen who can attest this legal document for me?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Skewen based
