My wife and I are hoping to buy a property in Mynydd Isa and are in fact using a Mynydd Isa conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Skipton Building Society have this afternoon contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Mynydd Isa conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?
When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Mynydd Isa solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
The Mynydd Isa conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my purchase in Mynydd Isa have without warning closed. I only went with them because I had to have a lawyer on the UBS conveyancing panel and my family Mynydd Isa lawyer was not. I cut them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the UBS conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers may be able to assist.
We are planning to move house in April. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Mynydd Isa. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across your website.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from the estate agent but this can only be done after the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. After that you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Mynydd Isa or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Mynydd Isa.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Mynydd Isa on 2/1/2024, valuation was booked 4 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Mynydd Isa I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Mynydd Isa in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
