The vendors of the house we are purchasing hired a conveyancing solicitor in Dinas Powys who has recommended a lock out agreement with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
This kind of arrangement is not the norm in Dinas Powys, conveyancers are often inclined to veer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer is left exposed. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the owner has signed a lock out agreement they will sell to you. They may breach the contract if they receive sufficient financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may obtain by reneging on the agreement, no matter how morally unworthy it undoubtedly is.
We are planning to move home in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Dinas Powys. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this page.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from your property agent but this should only occur once the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you will need to advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Dinas Powys or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Dinas Powys.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Dinas Powys conveyancing solicitors were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Nottingham?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nottingham conducted the survey? Have you informed Nottingham as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Coventry BS are being problematic. The Dinas Powys solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Coventry BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have miscalculated my finances and am a couple of thousand pounds short a 10% deposit on my apartment purchase in Dinas Powys , but I still want to exchange. Do I have options?
You can accept a lower deposit. Most sellers will agree to a lesser deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last minute
