As someone not used to the Pencader conveyancing process what is your top tip you can impart concerning the legal transfer of property in Pencader

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Pencader or throughout Ammanford is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For example, the seller, property agent and sometimes a mortgage company. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Pencader an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the process whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Co-operative Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Pencader?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Pencader. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Bank of Ireland are being difficult. The Pencader solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My offer on a house in Pencader has been agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Pencader. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Barclays?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Pencader conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your property lawyer is on the Barclays approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Barclays and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Pencader.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Pencader. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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 conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Pencader

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Pencader I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pencader for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
