How up to date is your search tool for Corwen conveyancing solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel? Do Santander send you an updated list?

Corwen conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Santander conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Santander directly.

I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would prefer to use a Corwen based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors where you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company to determine if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Corwen.

I am assisting my sister sell her house in Corwen. Does the conveyancing solicitor order an EPC or it is for the owner to coordinate?

Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments became a mandatory component of moving property. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not as aspect of the sale process that solicitors ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Corwen conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable Corwen providers

I'm the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Corwen. The Corwen property was put into my name in April. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. many lenders would take a sensible view as this provision is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I currently have a mortgage with Skipton for my property in Corwen. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Skipton?

Your original mortgage agreement with Skipton will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Skipton directly. You need not do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel solicitor.

I am purchasing a new build house in Corwen benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my lawyer about the extras as it may impact my loan with Skipton Building Society. Is this normal?.

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.

Am I better off to appoint a Corwen conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can carry out the legal work however her office is 300miles drive away.

The benefit of a high street Corwen conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, hand in your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were happy that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Corwen conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.
