Last July we completed a house move in Glan Conwy. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Glan Conwy?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Glan Conwy. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller fills in a form called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information ends up being misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Glan Conwy.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Glan Conwy. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Glan Conwy?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
I am buying a terrace house in Glan Conwy. We would like to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal due diligence on the property involve enquiries to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your conveyancer will review the deeds as conveyancing in Glan Conwy can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of changes or need the consent of another owner. Certain additions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Co-operative, do Glan Conwy solicitors face an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
Should our conveyancer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Glan Conwy.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Glan Conwy.

There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Glan Conwy. The standard information supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer could bring a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate response. A purchaser’s solicitors should also order an enviro search. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be carried out.
I am 14 days into a residential purchase having been directed to solicitors by the selling agent to perform conveyancing in Glan Conwy. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?
A conveyancer would need to be really bad to suggest changing them. Has the loan offer been issued? In the event that it has you need to advise them of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally should be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added costs and delays. That should be your starting point.
