We opted for a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Towyn last week. Going through the Terms I noteI am responsible for costs even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to choose a web based conveyancing company promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Towyn?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to cover the conveyances that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such deals rarely protect you from disbursements for example Towyn conveyancing search fees.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Towyn. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I can't locate my deeds. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a chance that the deeds will be with your lender or they could still be with the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Towyn involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
I am expecting a AIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Towyn solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Towyn solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
I have paid off my mortgage with Co-operative. I assume I don't need a Towyn conveyancer on the Co-operative panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Co-operative mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Co-operative mortgage from the register. Co-operative, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Co-operative has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Co-operative has instructed the Land Registry to do so
At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Towyn accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Towyn. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money started?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Towyn conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Towyn.
A friend recommended that where I am purchasing in Towyn I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is sometimes included in the estimate for your Towyn conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Towyn around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Towyn.
