The Aberdaron conveyancing lawyers that I appointed last week on my purchase in Aberdaron have suddenly closed. I chose them because I needed a lawyer on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel and my previous Aberdaron lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to assist.
I am helping my niece sell her property in Aberdaron. Does the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to coordinate?
After the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates became a required component of moving property. An EPC should be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. It is not a task that conveyancers normally organise. Where you are instructing a Aberdaron conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy assessments given their relationships with long established Aberdaron providers
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Aberdaron conveyancing solicitors have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Kent Reliance?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Kent Reliance conducted the valuation? Have you advised Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Aberdaron solicitor on the RBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your RBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so

The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Aberdaron levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold property.
