Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lisvane

My wife and I are nearing an exchange on a house in Lisvane and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?

Your conveyancing practitioner is legally required to check with mortgage company to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only notify this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Lisvane. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?

Given that you are now legally bound yourself to purchase you should hire the services of a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of urgency as you now have a tight deadline in which to complete the purchase. An auction property will have a bespoke auction set of papers. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the conveyancing papers may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You need to give this to the lawyer instructed by you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that you have funds in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

Your property agent will need to be informed of your solicitor's details (be sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the lender’s approved list). Contact UBS or your broker and finalise any outstanding forms. UBS will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or vendor to book a time for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. UBS will send the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Lisvane.

As is the case with lots of professional services, often recommendations from connections can be most helpful. Yet there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all put forward conveyancers to select. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers operate an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the mortgage related work in your home move.
