The owners of the property we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing firm in Llanwrda who has insisted on a preliminary agreement with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?
There are a couple of primary drawbacks with signing a lock out contract (occasionally referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from making progress with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated amongst Llanwrda conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A supplemental issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is extremely unlikely to obtain an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the vendor disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

I am the sole recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Llanwrda. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this provision principally exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Llanwrda off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Principality. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel.
