At what point will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Abersoch and do I need to attend the lawyers branch?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Abersoch you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer a national conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Abersoch)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
My partner and I are in the throws of looking at apartments in Abersoch and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a home loan with RBS.
It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are getting a mortgage with RBS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel.
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Abersoch building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Abersoch conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank approved list, they must comply with the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
My offer on a detached house in Abersoch has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Abersoch. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with TSB going?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Abersoch conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the TSB approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their solicitor to move forward with the conveyancing in Abersoch.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Abersoch?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Abersoch.

I am buying a new build house in Abersoch with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it would adversely affect my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Abersoch. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as usual given that all ground rent and service charges will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
