Will my solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Llandudno.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Llandudno. There are those who buy a house in Llandudno, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

The purchaser’s lawyers may also commission an environmental report. This should disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be conducted.
Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Llandudno , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Llandudno conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Llandudno registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties.

Registration takes place after the buyer is living at the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
