My offer on a property in Cilfynydd has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Cilfynydd. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Principality going?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Cilfynydd conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their lawyer to move forward with searches.
I bought my apartment on 1 November and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Cilfynydd expressed confidence that it should be recorded inside ten days. Are titles in Cilfynydd particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Cilfynydd registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration takes place after the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
