is it true that all Rhyl conveyancing solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Rhyl building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Rhyl conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your solicitor must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I moved into my flat on 9 November and my personal details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Rhyl said it should be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Rhyl uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Rhyl is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the buyer has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Rhyl differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Rhyl approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Rhyl usually 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Rhyl or who has acted in the same development.
