What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Beaumaris?
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Beaumaris and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, selling agent and even potentially your mortgage company. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Beaumaris an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose responsibility is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
There is a worrying creep in the "blame" culture- someone has to be blamed for the process taking so long. You your first instinct should be to trust your solicitor ahead of the other players when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
I am considering applying for a Leeds Building Society mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Beaumaris with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, but Leeds Building Society would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Beaumaris is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Beaumaris are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Beaumaris you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beaumaris may decide 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.
