Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aberaeron

We are purchasing a newly constructed apartment in Aberaeron and my conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound to the lender to disclose incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts and I would rather not delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Aberaeron but how do I know who's good?

It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Aberaeron conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

Is it the case that all Aberaeron CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the TSB conveyancing panel?

It is true that some banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

I currently have a mortgage with Leeds Building Society for my property in Aberaeron. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Leeds Building Society?

Leeds Building Society must be informed of your intention in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Leeds Building Society directly. You need not do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel firm.

How does conveyancing in Aberaeron differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Aberaeron approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Aberaeron usually acquire the site, 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 property lawyers 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Aberaeron I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Aberaeron for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
