When does exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Mancot and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?
If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Mancot you are welcome to come in to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend supply a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Mancot)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
My wife and I are purchasing a property in Mancot. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to put funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Is it the case that all Mancot solicitor firms on the Skipton conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Mancot off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Leeds Building Society. 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 Leeds Building Society, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
I am purchasing my first flat in Mancot with a loan from Chelsea Building Society. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it would put at risk my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
We are 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the selling agent to execute conveyancing in Mancot. I am am very disappointed with the quality of service. Can you help me find new lawyers?
A lawyer would have to be really poor in order to consider replacing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new solicitor and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid supplemental fees and frustration. That should be your first question of the new solicitors.

Am in the process of purchasing my first house in Mancot. Conveyancing practitioner has been chosen. The financial consultant advised that a survey is not appropriate as the property is only fifteen years old.
You would be well advised to undertake a Home Buyer's Report. As the property is more than 10 years old the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be enough. They will highlight any apparent issues and recommend additional investigation where relevant. If there are any indications of material issues obtain a full Building Survey from the beginning.
