Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Halkyn

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Halkyn is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Halkyn conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

My friend suggested that where I am purchasing in Halkyn I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Halkyn around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Halkyn Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Halkyn Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Halkyn.

How does conveyancing in Halkyn differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Halkyn approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Halkyn usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Halkyn or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I will soon spend £400,000 on a two bedroom apartment in Halkyn I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor about myhouse move in advance of appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the solicitor due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Halkyn.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a case reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Halkyn should be the figure that you are charged.

My husband and I are purchasing a four room housein Halkyn with a home loan from a mortgage company. We have a solicitor in Halkyn but our mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the our bank panel solicitors or stay with our Halkyn solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our bank. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Halkyn lawyer?

No, not really. The lender home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Halkyn : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
