My wife and I are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Aberdaron with a mortgage. We like our Aberdaron lawyer, however the bank says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have no option but to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or continue with our Aberdaron solicitor as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 Aberdaron conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Aberdaron differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Aberdaron contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Aberdaron typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying.

Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended.

My husband and I may need to rent out our Aberdaron basement flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Aberdaron conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Your lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Aberdaron do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
