Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Prestatyn

The Prestatyn conveyancing firm handling our Prestatyn conveyancing has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor says that he must check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s approach right?

Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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 am looking to buy a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Prestatyn who is on the Godiva Mortgages Ltd solicitor. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Godiva Mortgages Ltd in certain locations such as Prestatyn. We dont recommend any particular firm.

How can we tell if a Prestatyn conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Prestatyn seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Lloyds are being pedantic. The Prestatyn solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Lloyds are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Lloyds have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Lloyds 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.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Prestatyn conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Prestatyn postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Prestatyn.

I am buying a new build house in Prestatyn benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about this extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Prestatyn is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Prestatyn are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Prestatyn you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Prestatyn may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Am I best advised to go with a Prestatyn conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am buying? An old friend can deal with the legal formalities however his firm is located 200kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a local Prestatyn conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Prestatyn know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were impressed that must outweigh using an unknown Prestatyn conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Prestatyn based.
