Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Ystrad Mynach. Almost all the properties have already been occupied. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach?

If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a loan, your bank will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Ystrad Mynach conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or it may be necessary to find a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach.

At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach and am I required to attend the conveyancers office?

Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Ystrad Mynach you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ystrad Mynach)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Ystrad Mynach. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Principality be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Principality your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Principality where a lease does not meet these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Ystrad Mynach.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Ystrad Mynach. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

I'm buying a new build house in Ystrad Mynach with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

When it comes to my conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee

However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Ystrad Mynach conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the solicitor's time in submitting the funds this way.
