we are a couple who are buying a newly converted flat in Haverfordwest with a residential mortgage from Virgin Money.We like our Haverfordwest conveyancing lawyer but Virgin Money advised that she’s not on their approved list of member firms. It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Virgin Money panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for a Virgin Money panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Virgin Money approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Virgin Money

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the number one reason for delay in Haverfordwest conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Haverfordwest.

How does conveyancing in Haverfordwest differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Haverfordwest contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Haverfordwest usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Haverfordwest or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Haverfordwest before instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor has said that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Haverfordwest. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Haverfordwest. I have land on a web site which looks to be the perfect solution If it is possible to get all this stuff completed via web that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
