When will exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Caerwys and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Caerwys you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Caerwys)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I am the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Caerwys. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. Most lenders would take a sensible view as this clause primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.
Is it correct that all Caerwys CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the TSB conveyancing list of approved practices?
A selection of banks and building societies now utilise the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Caerwys. My financial adviser suggested a conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £225. A few days later, the solicitor contacted me to say that they were not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nationwide panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
How does conveyancing in Caerwys differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Caerwys contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Caerwys tend to acquire 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 Caerwys or who has acted in the same development.
My wife and I intend to purchase our first home in Caerwys. Conveyancing lawyer has been instructed. The broker pointed out that a survey is not needed as the property is only 20 yrs old.
The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. Given the premises was built over a decade ago the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could suffice. The report should highlight any apparent issues and recommend further investigation if appropriate. If there are any indications of material issues get a full structural survey.
