Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Rhos On Sea. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Rhos On Sea?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.
My conveyancer has informed me that chancel insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Rhos On Sea?
The right level of chancel indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Halifax and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
My wife and I are in the throws of viewing flats in Rhos On Sea and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland.
It would be prudent to start your search sooner rather than later.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house can not be found. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Rhos On Sea 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
Assuming you have a registered title the details of your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Rhos On Sea is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Rhos On Sea are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Rhos On Sea you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rhos On Sea may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their preferred solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Rhos On Sea
It is unlikely the owners are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Rhos On Sea conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures set by HQ.
