The sellers of the home we are hoping to buy hired a conveyancing practitioner in Tregaron who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?
Lock out contracts are agreements binding a home seller and purchaser granting the buyer the sole right to purchase the property for a limited period of time. For all intents and purposes, a lock out agreement is a contract specifying that you will receive a contract at a later date which is the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer protection though in some cases, the proprietor may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are various positives and negatives to using an agreement but you need to check with your conveyancer but beware that it may end up costing you extra in conveyancing fees. For these reasons these contracts are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Tregaron.
I am the only recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Tregaron. The Tregaron property was put into my name in October. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. Some mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this clause chiefly exists to capture subsales or the flipping of properties.
I am buying a property in Tregaron. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Santander have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Santander your lawyer must follow the formal requirements outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Santander. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Santander where a lease does not meet these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Tregaron.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Tregaron. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their solicitor. I paid an upfront payment of £150. Soon after, the lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Tregaron. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Tregaron
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? 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. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Tregaron I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Tregaron suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
