The loan offer from Santander for the remortgage of my 4 bedroom flat is coming within the next few days. Could you propose a cheap conveyancing law firm in Talsarnau?
You are on the wrong site if you are seeking cut-price fees for conveyancing in Talsarnau. Our aim is to provide value for money conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint brokers offering £99 conveyancing in Talsarnau. At best, in choosing a lawyer for low cost conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst you will end up with a surprising uplift in extras and still not end up with the service you were hoping for.
Will lawyers ask for money up-front for conveyancing in Talsarnau?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Talsarnau your solicitor will request that you put them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Ordinarily this is requested to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the deposit is as part of the purchase price then this will be needed shortly ahead of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be transferred a few days ahead of the completion date.

I own a semi-detached Georgian house in Talsarnau. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Santander to clarify?
You should review 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Talsarnau and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
My partner has suggested that I use his conveyancers in Talsarnau. Should I use them?
There are no two ways about it the ideal way to find a conveyancing practitioner is to get recommendations from friends or relatives who have actually previously instructed the solicitor you're contemplating using.
Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 72 years remaining on my lease in Talsarnau. I am keen to extend my lease but my freeholder is absent. What are my options?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to find the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent may be useful to conduct investigations and prepare a report which can be used as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor in relation to devolving into the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Talsarnau.
I invested in buying a leasehold flat in Talsarnau, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. How much will my lease extension cost?

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
