How does conveyancing in Llanbedrgoch differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Llanbedrgoch contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Llanbedrgoch usually purchase 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 property lawyers 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 Llanbedrgoch or who has acted in the same development.

Our lawyer in Llanbedrgoch has uncovered a defect with the lease for the flat we are buying in Llanbedrgoch. The seller’s lawyers have offered defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer says that as he is on the bank conveyancing panel he must be satisfied that the lender is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the mortgage company are the client. A precondition to being on the bank approved panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects will the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected . Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
