I am in a contract race with another buyer for a property in Sketty. What can I do to speed up matters?
In a situation where you are under a tight deadline to exchange it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local connections and insight. It is possible that they may have handled otherhomes in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Sketty conveyancing lawyer. In addition, make sure that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is said that just under twenty per cent of Sketty conveyancing deals are suspended or jeopardised after discovering a buyer’s solicitor was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. This can often result in the legal transfer of property being held up by as much as 21 days. It is estimated that this issue impacts approximately one hundred thousand home sales every year. Almost all Sketty conveyancing practices can not act for certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.
When does exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Sketty and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?
If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Sketty you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend supply a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone.

The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Sketty)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Sketty is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Sketty are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Sketty 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 Sketty may ascertain 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.
