My best friend’s sister is a conveyancing practitioner. I am hopeful that I'll be able to get mate’s rates for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Cardigan?
Do contrast pricing. Make use of our search tool on this page. Whilst quotes will vary but the service one can expect differ between solicitors as is the case with most professions.
When will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Cardigan and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Cardigan you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the law practices we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Cardigan)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I am being told by my conveyancer that missing deeds insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Cardigan conveyancing?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
I am the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Cardigan. The Cardigan property was put into my name in May. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in May. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Cardigan. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Cardigan. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cardigan
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.
I decided to have a survey done on a property in Cardigan in advance of retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on this type of premises.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Cardigan. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Cardigan - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
