Much to our surprise we have been told by our mortgage adviser that my Aberbargoed property lawyer is not on the bank Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure that this is correct?
Your first step should be to contact your Aberbargoed conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Aberbargoed conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
In the event thatI were to acquire a freehold housein Aberbargoed for cash and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Aberbargoed?
The only saving you would achieve is the costs for searches. Your conveyancing practitioner is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, correspond with the sellers lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the ownership etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a mortgage however it won't be significant.
Finally the sale completed on my house in Aberbargoed last April but our buyer keeps e-mailing me to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?
After completion of your sale your conveyancer should forward the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. If applicable, your conveyancer should also evidence that the home loan has been repaid to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in Aberbargoed.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Aberbargoed is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Aberbargoed are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Aberbargoed you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Aberbargoed may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
