Can you recommend a The Mortgage Works sanctioned Llanbedr conveyancing practice that can complete within two weeks? Am I best advised to unstruct a local Llanbedr conveyancer or a factory type conveyancer?
We can recommend some very good Llanbedr conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the main road in Llanbedr. Go in to a couple of law practices and request to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a costs illustration. Mention your requirements together with your reasons and ask for an assurance on your deadline. Select the one that appears most efficient.
is it true that all Llanbedr solicitor practices on the TSB conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the TSB approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Llanbedr conveyancing lawyers were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Lloyds completed the valuation? Have you informed Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Llanbedr. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

How does conveyancing in Llanbedr differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Llanbedr approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because house builders in Llanbedr usually acquire the site, 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 Llanbedr or who has acted in the same development.
My wife and I have instructed a Llanbedr conveyancing solicitor for our home move (novice purchasers) and have picked up in the Ts and Cs that they are not governed by the Financial Conduct Authority. Should I be concerned or is that usually the case with property lawyer?
We can't see why they should be. Most solicitor don't lend money. They will be governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who set specific rules in relation to funds deposited by them.
