I can't travel far from Colwyn Bay. Is there a reason why all Colwyn Bay property lawyers are not on all lender panels?

Lenders normally impose restrictions on either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Frequent examples of such criteria being that the practice needs to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the structure of firm, some have decided to limit the size of their panel they permit to act for them.

Increases in mortgage fraud was the key driver in the reduction of solicitor panels a few years ago even though there are differing assessments about whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Statistics published by HMLR indicates that thousands of conveyancing firms only transact one or two conveyances annually.

That being said, the firms we work with provide a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Colwyn Bay)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am purchasing my first flat in Colwyn Bay with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

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.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Colwyn Bay. Before diving in I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Colwyn Bay - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I acquired a studio flat in Colwyn Bay, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Colwyn Bay with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2085

You have 66 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £11,400 and £13,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

Neither should you move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.

The conveyancers conducting our conveyancing in Colwyn Bay has forwarded papers to review that state the land is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not currently recorded at HM Land Regsitry?
