Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Connahs Quay. I would like to know the reason why all Connahs Quay property lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Lenders tend to impose restrictions on either the type or volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such criteria being that the organisation must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some building societies made a decision to limit the number of organisations they allow to represent them. It is worth noting that building societies have no accountability for the standard of service provided by any Connahs Quay conveyancing practitioner on their panel. Mortgage fraud was the primary trigger for the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago notwithstanding that there are differing opinions about whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Data from HMLR exposes that thousands of conveyancing firms only transact one or two conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel cuts ask why conveyancing firms deserve the right to be listed on a lender panel when it is apparent that property law is not their speciality?
We're in Connahs Quay, First time buyers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Principality , and our lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
We expect to receive a DIP from Clydesdale this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Clydesdale recommend any Connahs Quay solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Connahs Quay solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Connahs Quay off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Nottingham. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
Bank of Ireland have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a flat in Connahs Quay has been accepted, what are the next steps?
Your estate agent will wish to be advised as to your solicitor's details (make sure the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Bank of Ireland or your broker and finalise any relevant forms.

Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Bank of Ireland will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Connahs Quay.

My husband and I are four weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the local agent to handle our conveyancing in Connahs Quay. I am am extremely disappointed with the level of service. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
They would need to be very poor to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage been generated? If so you will need to advise them of the new contact details and get the loan are re-issued.
