There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Conwy but how do I know who I should use?

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Conwy conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Conwy. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Conwy?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Conwy. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be able to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.

I am the single beneficiary of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Conwy. The Conwy property was put into my name in July. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in July. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this requirement primarily exists to capture subsales or the flipping of properties.

I have todaybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Conwy for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Conwy conveyancing specialists.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Conwy is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Conwy are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Conwy you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Conwy may determine 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 residence.

We are seeking to purchase a repossessed flat in Conwy and the vendor would like to complete inside a month. Can a solicitor complete in this timeframe? Would it be better to instruct a local Conwy firm or an online firm that professes to offer speedy conveyancing?
