I have just started taking steps with a view to changing my existing standard home loan to a Buy to Let The Mortgage Works mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I need a conveyancer for this. I spoke to my past Colwyn Bay conveyancing solicitor who dealt with the legals when I previously bought the house. The fee calculation sent of just over five hundred pounds has surprised me as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The quote is fractionally on the high side. If you you were to look around you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say a hundred pounds. On the other hand, assuming were content with the conveyancing the firm offered you couldcome to regret opting for an an untested lawyer. Don't forget to enquire the firm can act for The Mortgage Works. Do utilise our search tool to find a Colwyn Bay conveyancing firm on the The Mortgage Works approved list of lawyers, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Colwyn Bay.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Colwyn Bay. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Colwyn Bay?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nationwide. Is it usual for Nationwide to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Colwyn Bay is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nationwide have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I've read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Colwyn Bay solicitor - who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Colwyn Bay postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Colwyn Bay.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Colwyn Bay?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Colwyn Bay. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Colwyn Bay ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may not grant a loan on such a property.
