Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Aberaeron. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?
Having exchanged you will need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner soon as you will have a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the deal. Every auction property will have a corresponding auction pack. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold property the legal pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You need to give this to the conveyancer instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
A friend advised me that in buying a property in Aberaeron there may be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external changes to a property. Is this right?

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by UBS. Is it usual for UBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Aberaeron is approved on their conveyancing panel? UBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

How does conveyancing in Aberaeron differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Aberaeron come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Aberaeron tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Aberaeron or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Aberaeron I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Aberaeron suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
