My fiancee and I are purchasing our first property. The lawyer has messagedto see if we would like to order extra conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's appropriate for conveyancing in Lampeter
The range of Lampeter conveyancing searches depends entirely on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the locality and risks, your overall approach to risk. What is important is that you adequately appreciate what information the searches could provide. You may then make a decision if you consider that you need that information. If in doubt, ask the conveyancing practitioner to advise.
I am the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Lampeter. The Lampeter property was put into my name in November. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.
Does a directory service exist listing TSB panel conveyancers in Lampeter on the Building Society Association’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings available over the internet. Where you are seeking to appoint a Lampeter property lawyer on the TSB please use our facility.
is it true that all Lampeter conveyancing solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Nationwide approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the CLC.
I need some fast conveyancing in Lampeter as I am faced with a deadline to complete within 3 weeks. Luckily I do not require a mortgage. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

The deeds to my home can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Lampeter 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be evidenced by HMLR with a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Lampeter with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the extras as it will put at risk my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
