Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tredegar

My fiance and I decided to purchase a purpose built apartment in Tredegar with a loan from Barclays Direct.We use our Tredegar conveyancing practitioner but Barclays Direct informed us he's not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Barclays Direct panel lawyer or keep our local solicitor and pay for a Barclays Direct panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Barclays Direct use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the Barclays Direct approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barclays Direct

What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Tredegar

There are two types of lawyers who can do conveyancing in Tredegar namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors. The two can provide conveyancing services that you need to complete the disposal or purchase of property. Both are required to handle Tredegar conveyancing to the same standards and guidelines so you may be sure that your conveyancing will be professionally carried out and that all necessary procedures will be accurately taken.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Tredegar. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Tredegar?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the owner’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

Is there a list of Lloyds panel solicitors in Tredegar on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public over the internet. Where you are looking for a Tredegar solicitor on the Lloyds please make the most of our tool.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Tredegar?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Tredegar. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

My business partner and I are hoping to take over a lease of a shop on a shopping parade. Can you recommend lawyers offering no-move-no charges for non-domestic conveyancing in Tredegar for less than £1,200?

Whether you are hoping to acquire or sell a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail unit or a whole business we can put you in touch with the right solicitor.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agent office in Tredegar where we see a number of leasehold sales derailed due to short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Tredegar conveyancing firms. Please can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Tredegar - Examples of Queries before buying

    Does the lease contain onerous restrictions? Is the freehold owned jointly by the tenants? Who are the managing agents?

18 days into a sale of a flat in Tredegar. Conveyancing lawyers are doing their job but we have been asked to pay an extortionate amount from the freeholder. So far we have paid £225 for a leasehold management pack and then another £117.20 for supplemental queries raised by the purchaser's lawyer.

You will not have control over the level of the charges for this information however the typical costs for the information for Tredegar leasehold property is £360. When it comes to Tredegar conveyancing deals it is conventional for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions although many will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices out of proportion to the work involved. Regretfully there is no statute that requires capped charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any set time limit by which they are obliged to issue the information.
