We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to use a Dolgellau based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the the likelihood is that allocate you one of their panel conveyancers if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Call the mortgage company to explore if they offer you a cash alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Dolgellau.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Dolgellau and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Dolgellau. Having lived in Dolgellau for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to 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 sickness)
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Dolgellau in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on such a home.
