This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Rowen. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Rowen?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Rowen conveyancing practitioners have been appointed. How long does it take for Santander to issue the offer to the property lawyer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Santander completed the survey? Have you informed Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Rowen. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £225. A few days later, the conveyancer called me to say that they were not on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the HSBC panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Rowen before instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend not issue a loan on a flying freehold property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Rowen. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Rowen especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Rowen.

My father-in-law has encouraged me to instruct his conveyancers in Rowen. Should I use them?
