My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Ammanford. I I would like to check if they are on the HSBC Bank approved list of lawyers. Can you help?
The first thing you should do is call the conveyancer and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise please get in touch with HSBC Bank who may be able to confirm.
My friend recommended that where I am purchasing in Ammanford I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is occasionally included in the estimate for your Ammanford conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Ammanford around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Ammanford Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Ammanford.
My husband and I are new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the property agent advised that the seller will only proceed if we instruct the agent's recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Ammanford
It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Ammanford conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
Back In 2006, I bought a leasehold flat in Ammanford. Conveyancing and Britannia mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Ammanford who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Ammanford conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Why is New Build conveyancing in Ammanford more costly?
Acquiring a brand new premises is significantly distinct from the standard house purchase conveyancing in Ammanford. For a start housebuilders usually insist contracts to exchange inside a short timeframe, so there is a lot of pressure on your solicitor to ensure everything is in order. Furthermore new build conveyancing frequently involve examination of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Mortgage company obligations are also more detailed. Taking into account the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
