The sensible course of action for you to take is to call your Dolwyddelan conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Dolwyddelan conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.

I am buying a new build apartment in Dolwyddelan. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Dolwyddelan

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
We're FTB’s - agreed a price, but the agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Dolwyddelan
We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Dolwyddelan conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.
