We are purchasing our first house. Our conveyancing practitioner has messagedto see if we would like to purchase supplemental conveyancing searches. Unfortunately we have no idea as to what's recommended for conveyancing in Hengoed
The quantity and type of Hengoed conveyancing searches depends entirely on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the region and risks, your general appetite to risk. What is important is that you properly comprehend what information the searches could provide. Then you can make a decision if you consider that you need that search. Where you are uncertain, ask your conveyancing practitioner to recommend.
The Hengoed conveyancing firm that just started acting on my house acquisition in Hengoed have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I needed a firm on the RBS conveyancing panel and my previous Hengoed lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the RBS conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Hengoed. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being pedantic. The Hengoed solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Yorkshire BS. Is it usual for Yorkshire BS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Hengoed is approved on their conveyancing panel? Yorkshire BS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Been on the hunt for a conveyancer for leasehold sale conveyancing in Hengoed. I'm selling, simple no mortgage to redeem, no hurry, no onward purchase. Received a quote from a conveyancing practitioner for £1000 including VAT which is a little high considering its so straightforward. Can I pay less for conveyancing in Hengoed?
Considering it’s a sale only, £425 + VAT should be about the lowest for a Hengoed solicitor firm.
