Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aberporth

I am nearing an exchange on a house in Aberporth and my mum and dad have transferred the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?

Your conveyancing practitioner is obliged to check with the bank to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

2 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Aberporth completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I have been pointed in your direction by a number of property agents in Aberporth to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services over a competitor’s?

We refuse to give any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
