Last February we completed a house move in Gwynedd. We have noticed several issues with the house which we suspect were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted for conveyancing in Gwynedd?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Gwynedd. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a form referred to as a SPIF. If the information turns out to be incorrect, you may have a misrepresentation claim 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 Gwynedd.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Gwynedd? Is this really necessary?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Terms and Conditions that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Should you refuse to hand over identification documents, your lawyer can not take you on as a client.

I can see plenty of information on this site about conveyancing in Gwynedd but what is your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Gwynedd

We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Gwynedd conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Gwynedd

Two types of professional can conduct conveyancing in Gwynedd namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. The two can handle the legal services that you need to complete the sale or purchase of property. They are both duty bound to carry out Gwynedd conveyancing to the same standards and guidelines so you can be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly conducted and that all requisite steps will be correctly followed.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Gwynedd. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Gwynedd I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Gwynedd in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
