This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Roath. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Roath?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be able to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
My husband and I are in the process of looking at flats in Roath and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancer in place at this stage? I am planning to take a mortgage with Coventry BS.
You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Coventry BS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Roath bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Roath conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank panel, they must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
