We had appointed conveyancers locally in Hengoed on the Co-operative solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental amount for handling the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Co-operative?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor may charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Co-operative but by your Hengoed lawyer. Numerous firms on the Co-operative panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Hengoed bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Hengoed conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your conveyancer has to comply with the CML Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

My offer was accepted on a property in Hengoed on 12/4/2023, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

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 Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Should my lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Hengoed.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Hengoed. Some people will purchase a property in Hengoed, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Hengoed. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the seller to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could issue a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect response. A purchaser’s solicitors may also order an enviro search. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Hengoed. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hengoed

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Hoping to buy a property located in Hengoed and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Hengoed. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Hengoed area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Hengoed. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

My lawyers in Hengoed have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?

It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
