Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Llanarth

I am considering applying for a Coventry BS mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Llanarth with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Coventry BS ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, but Coventry BS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

Is it the case that all Llanarth CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Coventry BS conveyancing list of approved solicitors?

It is true that some lenders now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their panels.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Bank of Ireland. Llanarth conveyancing practitioners are chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Bank of Ireland?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Bank of Ireland completed the survey? Have you informed Bank of Ireland as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Llanarth property lawyer on the RBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your RBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your RBS mortgage has been paid off.

A colleague recommended that where I am buying in Llanarth I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Llanarth conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Llanarth around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Llanarth Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Llanarth Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Llanarth.

How does conveyancing in Llanarth differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Llanarth approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Llanarth 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Llanarth or who has acted in the same development.

I am intending to rent out my leasehold apartment in Llanarth. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

Notwithstanding that your previous Llanarth conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can check your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the premises. The rule is that if the lease is silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. This means you not allowed to sublet without first obtaining consent. The consent should not be unreasonably withheld. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

Llanarth Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    What is the the remaining lease term? Is anyone aware of any major works on the horizon that could add a premium to the service costs? What is the name of the managing agents?

There are a number of houses in Llanarth on private lanes. I am acquiring such a property. What would be the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing a property on a private road?

Llanarth conveyancing solicitors will be used to transacting propertieson unadopted roads. Your solicitor will review the title to find any rights or responsibilities. In many cases there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that owners make annual contributions to maintain the road. Where one exists, the road should be maintained and look better than publicly adopted.
