In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Caerwys? Is this really necessary?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign should confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Should you refuse to hand over identification documents, your solicitor will not be able to take you on as a client.
Can I be sure that the Caerwys conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Caerwys getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.
My partner and I have arranged the release of further funds on our mortgage from TSB as we wish to carry out a loft conversion to our property in Caerwys. Are we obliged to appoint a local Caerwys solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
TSB would not normally instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB panel.
I have paid off my mortgage with Nottingham. I assume I don't need a Caerwys conveyancing practitioner on the Nottingham panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Nottingham 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 Nottingham mortgage from the register. Nottingham, 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 Nottingham has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nottingham has instructed the Land Registry to do so
We are selling our house in Caerwys and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Caerwys. Having lived in Caerwys for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
four months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Caerwys took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Caerwys with the intention of expediting the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Caerwys can be reduced where you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ representatives. You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but you should double-check via your solicitors. A buyer’s conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to where the remaining number of years is under 80 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. A minority of Caerwys leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share document. Arranging a re-issued share certificate can be a time consuming formality and frustrates many a Caerwys conveyancing deal. If a new share is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity.
