As I am unsure how the conveyancing bit works what is the most important piece of guidance you can impart concerning purchase conveyancing in Llandudno Junction?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Llandudno Junction or throughout Conwy is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the seller, estate agent and even potentially your bank. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Llandudno Junction is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose role it is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
There is a worrying emergence in the "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. You must always trust your conveyancer above the other parties in the home moving process.

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Llandudno Junction what would it be?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Llandudno Junction conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

Our offer on a semi in Llandudno Junction has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Llandudno Junction. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Coventry BS going?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Llandudno Junction conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Coventry BS approved list. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Coventry BS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Llandudno Junction.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Llandudno Junction is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Llandudno Junction are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Llandudno Junction you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Llandudno Junction may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
