We are intending to buy a 3 bedroom apartment in Ystrad Mynach with a mortgage. We have a Ystrad Mynach solicitor, however the lender advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel solicitors or keep our Ystrad Mynach lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to act for them.

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel.

You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice.

How does conveyancing in Ystrad Mynach differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Ystrad Mynach come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because developers in Ystrad Mynach typically buy the site, 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 Ystrad Mynach or who has acted in the same development.
