We're in Kilgetty, First timers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is TSB , and our lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I got the keys to my house on 11 May and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Kilgetty expressed confidence that it should be recorded inside ten days. Are properties in Kilgetty uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Kilgetty registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present in the region of 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore post completion formalities is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Kilgetty differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Kilgetty come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Kilgetty typically buy 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 used to new build conveyancing in Kilgetty or who has acted in the same development.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Kilgetty what are the most frequent lease problems?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Kilgetty. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Lloyds TSB Bank, Skipton Building Society, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
