As someone with no idea as to the Newcastle Emlyn conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can impart for the ownership transfer in Newcastle Emlyn

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Newcastle Emlyn and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. E.g., the vendor, property agent and sometimes the lender. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Newcastle Emlyn is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose responsibility is to protect your legal interests and to protect you.

On occasion a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is slow. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Newcastle Emlyn

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Newcastle Emlyn conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 advance.

My solicitor has informed me that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Newcastle Emlyn conveyancing?

The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

Intending to buy a maisonette in Newcastle Emlyn. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

How does conveyancing in Newcastle Emlyn differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Newcastle Emlyn come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Newcastle Emlyn typically buy the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Newcastle Emlyn or who has acted in the same development.
