Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Dolgellau is more expensive?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Dolgellau and Gwynedd usually warrants extra work compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes reviewing the lease, corresponding with the landlord concerning the service of required notices, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first granted.

Have completed on a a terraced house in Dolgellau , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Dolgellau conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is dealt with.
As far as conveyancing in Dolgellau is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore 'speed' is not usually an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Am I best advised to use a Dolgellau conveyancing practitioner based in the location that I am buying? We have a good friend who can conduct the legal work but his firm is located 300miles drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Dolgellau conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and the majority were happy that must trump using an unfamiliar Dolgellau conveyancing lawyer just because they are Dolgellau based.
Our sealed bid on house in Dolgellau was accepted, the owner does however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Dolgellau. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Dolgellau conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Santander and pay for the survey and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Dolgellau.
