Me and my partner are about to exchange buying a property in Aberporth but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor in the sum of three thousand pounds by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet Clydesdale will not agree to this. Should they have been informed?
Your conveyancer being on a Clydesdale approved list is duty bound to disclose to Clydesdale of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to disclose the reduction to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Aberporth.

Should you refuse to provide identification documents, your solicitor can not take you on as a client.

I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Aberporth. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Aberporth off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Aldermore. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
How does conveyancing in Aberporth differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Aberporth come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Aberporth usually buy the land, 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. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Aberporth or who has acted in the same development.
