Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Gwynedd. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?
Now that you have exchanged you now have to find a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of priority as you are faced with a fast approaching a drop dead date to complete the conveyancing. All auction property should have an associated auction set of papers. This should include evidence of title and search results.

You should give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that you have funds in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Gwynedd. I have a mortgage agreed with Kent Reliance. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Gwynedd agreed to, the owners do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Gwynedd. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS started?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Gwynedd conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. Concerning the next steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Gwynedd.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Gwynedd. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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 conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Gwynedd
The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Are there frequently found problems that you see in leases for Gwynedd properties?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Gwynedd. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain clauses are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Insurance obligations
A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Lloyds TSB Bank, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and Britannia all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
