We expect to receive a DIP from Lloyds this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Cwmcarn solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Cwmcarn solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Cwmcarn. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
Just bought a semi-detached house in Cwmcarn , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Cwmcarn conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Cwmcarn registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any other parties. At present approximately three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration takes place once the new owner is living at the property thus registration formalities is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am buying a new build house in Cwmcarn with a loan from Bank of Ireland. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it may impact my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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 work for a long established estate agent office in Cwmcarn where we see a few leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Cwmcarn conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the buyer?
As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Please tell me if there are any major works in the near future that could add a premium to the service fees?
