I have just been advised by my financial adviser that my Ruthin solicitor is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. How can I be certain whether this is indeed the case?

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Ruthin is more expensive?

The conveyancing costs for a leasehold premises in Ruthin is frequently higher than on a freehold transaction.

We are buying a property in Ruthin. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we have to put funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Ruthin. The Ruthin property was put into my name in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

I'm at the point of looking at houses in Ruthin and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a conveyancer in place at this point? I will be getting a home loan with Nationwide.

It would be wise to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Ruthin and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Ruthin conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Ruthin. Having lived in Ruthin for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

I moved into my house on 8 September and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Ruthin said it should be formalised inside ten days. Are titles in Ruthin uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Ruthin registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Ruthin prior to retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Ruthin. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Ruthin to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
