Given that your lender is Clydesdale your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Trefnant.

I have been told that property searches are a common reason for delay in Trefnant conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Trefnant.

Me and my brother purchased a terraced Georgian property in Trefnant. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Bank of Scotland to clarify?

You should assess 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 Trefnant and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Trefnant is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Trefnant are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Trefnant you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Trefnant may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I pay a service charge for my appartment in Trefnant. Due to redundancy and other issues I fell behind with remittance. The managing agents agreed a settlement plan but there remains around £2000 currently due.

I am under pressure to sell and I am worried this may hold me back if I have to discharge the amount due first. I'd like to sell up and then discharge the arrears from the proceeds - is this practicable?

Do clarify with the lawyer dealing with your Trefnant conveyancing but it may be possible to agree for the debt to be attributed to the buyers. The purchase price they pay would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They would then discharge the arrears once they are the owners.
