I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would much rather instruct a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Isle Of Anglesey?
Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors where you take up the "fee-free" deal. Call the mortgage company to ask if they make available a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Isle Of Anglesey.
We had selected conveyancers with offices in Isle Of Anglesey on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate fee for the legal aspects of the Bank of Ireland mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Bank of Ireland?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Bank of Ireland but by your Isle Of Anglesey conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Bank of Ireland panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Isle Of Anglesey off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Santander. Conveyancing is new to me. 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 Santander, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Isle Of Anglesey. My financial adviser suggested a solicitor. I paid an on account payment of £225. A few days later, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Yorkshire BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Isle Of Anglesey I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Isle Of Anglesey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
