Conveyancing In Whitland Q & A's
In what ways can my Whitland conveyancer report on the risk and history of local flooding in Whitland?
An important step in the conveyancing process of buying a property involves your lawyer carrying out environmental searches that set out detail with regard to Whitland historical flood risk.
Why does purchase conveyancing seem to be so slow?
The conveyancing process may be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and work hard to reduce their impact, if it is possible to do so, by chasing for prompt responses. Delays include the time taken to return management information.
How can I buy the freehold of the building in which I’m purchasing a flat?
When you buy a leasehold flat (usually for a lease lasting a long time), it means that you don’t own the building or the land on which it is built. If you want to buy the freehold of the building (either yourself or with other flat-owners), you’ll need to meet a few legal criteria before that can happen (such as the number of flats, the purpose to which the majority of the building is put to, and the number of flat-owners willing to by the freehold).
One additional point to note is that the shorter the lease on any flat, the greater the price of the freehold is likely to be.
You should talk to other residents about your plan as well as finding out how much the freehold will be and getting a professional valuation. Once you are in a position to move ahead, you’ll need to appoint a solicitor to manage the legal aspect of the planned purchase.

Halifax Loans will be our mortgage lender - is there anything we need to know?
Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We, fortunately, can act for most lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.
