Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crickhowell

My fiance’s brother is a property lawyer. I hope that I'll be able to get friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Crickhowell?

It’s prudent to obtain two or three conveyancing estimates. Do use our search tool on this page. You will notice that quotes may contrast greatly but service levels do differ between property lawyers as is the case with the vast majority of professional services.

I am buying a newly built flat in Crickhowell and my conveyancer is telling me that she is duty bound to the bank to reveal incentives from the developer. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to sign contracts and my preference is not to prolong matters. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

We had selected solicitors with offices in Crickhowell on the Aldermore solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a supplemental charge for dealing with the Aldermore mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Aldermore?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Aldermore but by your Crickhowell lawyer. Some firms on the Aldermore panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I am expecting a DIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Yorkshire BS recommend any Crickhowell solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Crickhowell solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.

I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Crickhowell on 8/12/2020, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Are Lloyds entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of obstruction in Crickhowell conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Crickhowell.
