Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Conwy

I am getting closer to an exchange on a flat in Conwy and my parents have transferred the exchange deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the bank concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

Your solicitor is duty bound to check with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Conwy and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for friction between you and others involved in the house moving process. For instance, the vendor, property agent and even potentially a bank. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Conwy is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose interest is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest will try and convince you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your lawyer is slow. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do take action that is against your solicitors recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

We don’t give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction.

Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
