Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Carmarthen

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Carmarthen. I I would like to check whether they are on the Barclays Direct conveyancing panel. Could you help?

The first thing to do is contact your lawyer and enquire if they can act for the lender. Otherwise please call Barclays Direct who may be able to confirm.

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Carmarthen what would it be?

Do not opt for the cheapest Carmarthen conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Carmarthen. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Clydesdale are being pedantic. The Carmarthen solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I am purchasing a new build house in Carmarthen with a mortgage from Barclays . The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my lawyer about this extras as it could jeopardize my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My husband and I accepted an offer on a Carmarthen apartment we inherited some years ago in 2009. I have over a decades worth of conveyancing experience and, although retired, wish to undertake my own conveyancing. The purchaser's property lawyer has informed me that their building society will not allow us to do our own conveyancing insisting the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.
