I have just been advised by my estate agent that my Llanrwst the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?
The sensible course of action for you to take is to call your Llanrwst conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Llanrwst conveyancing practice that is on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
The Llanrwst conveyancing firm handling our Llanrwst conveyancing has uncovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action appropriate?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Llanrwst. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
