I can't travel far from Nefyn. I would like to know the understand why all Nefyn conveyancing practitioners are not on all bank panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It led to lenders purging less reputable firms from their official list of approved lawyers .
Our solicitor has uncovered a defect with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Nefyn. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancer says that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their specifications for the purposes of a mortgage.

How does conveyancing in Nefyn differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Nefyn approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Nefyn typically buy 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 Nefyn or who has acted in the same development.
