We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Porthmadog conveyancing solicitors are chosen. How long does it take for Barclays to issue the offer to the conveyancer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays done the survey? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

About to purchase apartment in Porthmadog. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Porthmadog lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

The deeds to my home can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Porthmadog 5 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

Gone are the days when you need to hold title original deeds to prove you are the owner of your registered land or premises, as the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Porthmadog in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to give a loan on such a house.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Nationwide. If you call us we can look into this further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Porthmadog. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I was recommended by a few selling agents in Porthmadog to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your services over a competitor’s?

We refuse to give any commission for sending work our way. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I am using a search engine for the phrase on line conveyancing in Porthmadog it shows results of numerous conveyancersin the vicinity. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right solicitor for the sale of my house?

The best way of choosing a suitable conveyancer is via trusted recommendation, so ask friends and family who have purchased a property in Porthmadog or a respected estate agent or financial adviser. Costs for conveyancing in Porthmadog differ, so it's a good idea to obtain a minimum of four fee calculations from different companies. Be sure to obtain confirmation that the costs are guaranteed not to escalate.

New build sellers have suggested I use a conveyancer and I've obtained a quote from them. It's nearly £250 less expensive than my local Porthmadog conveyancing practitioner. Should I use them?

Developers often have panels of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the developer’s contract and solicitor. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to select their approved conveyancer for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer will not recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the transaction stall when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. The argument for not opting for the suggested property lawyer is that they may prove hesitant to fight for your interests at the risk of alienating the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should keep with your local Porthmadog conveyancer.
