Lenders in Pembrokeshire

What are the consequences if your solicitor is not on your Lender's panel?

Panels of solicitors are maintained by mortgage lenders in order to undertake legal work on mortgaged properties. More recently, lenders have begun to remove firms which have either not completed many conveyancing transactions or have failed to meet other criteria. These options are available to any homebuyer whose solicitor is not on their lender's panel:

  • Try to obtain a mortgage from another lender who will instruct your Conveyancing solicitor.
  • Instruct another firm of Conveyancing solicitors who are on your lender's panel to handle your Conveyancing.
  • Continue with your present Conveyancing solicitor, but accept that a separate firm will also act for the lender, and that you will have to pay their costs in addition.

It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage. Issues to consider if you intend to swap to a firm on the panel:

  • The second firm may have a different fee structure, or higher fees
  • Work which the first solicitor has completed already may need to be paid for regardless of your decision.
  • Your new conveyancing solicitor may have weaker local knowledge.
Trees in Pembrokeshire

The impact of Tree Preservation Orders

Sellers of property asked to state whether they have carried out any work to trees under a protection order (TPO), and to supply copies of any approvals. If an application is being made to remove a tree completely, the council can ask for a replacement tree to be planted elsewhere as a condition of giving consent.

Conditions placed on Pembrokeshire developers requiring them to plant trees during construction do not necessarily imply a TPO is in place.

Environmental in Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire solicitors will get an Environmental Search to highlight any serious local environmental concerns

Your ideal home's history may hide health risks and other dangers. Fortunately, an environmental search is there to uncover these.

Your Pembrokeshire Conveyancing Solicitor will usually perform a search of a variety of records of issues, including the historical use of the land, past contaminants and polluting processes, nearby toxic substances, radon gas and the risk of subsidence and flooding. Liability for the clean up of environmental issues primarily rests with the contaminator of the property. Your environmental search in Pembrokeshire will be supported by a range of documentation which may be available in full.

Tips for completing conveyancing faster

Your conveyancing solicitor can drive your move forward, meaning that they will chase the other parties, including the other side's solicitors, search providers, the managing agents and other parties in a chain. Instructing a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the first step to increasing your chance of completing your home move faster. However there are numerous steps you can follow to fast-track the conveyancing:

  • Ask your solicitor to order searches early
  • Promptly complete and return forms and other paperwork as soon as possible
  • If you are selling, respond to any queries as soon as you can

Following these steps alone could reduce the time it takes to complete your sale or purchase by several days.

Online Conveyancing Quotes

Home buyers and sellers who have chosen traditional solicitors for a previous move might feel the cheaper fees quoted by a conveyancer they have found online are suggestive of poor service, or are suspiciously good.

Whilst it is accurate that the quality of conveyancing varies considerably from firm to firm, service levels, speed or cost have little to do with whether or not a conveyancing solicitor markets their services online.

Although some home buyers prefer to be able to visit their conveyancing solicitor in person, this is not essential. A proactive solicitor should help to speed up your move more than a lawyer you need to meet in person.

Mining in Pembrokeshire

Do you require a Coal & Brine Report (Coal Authority) when purchasing in Pembrokeshire?

Some homes in Pembrokeshire may be affected by now-closed mine workings, in the form of subsidence or environmental issues. The mining search provides records of coal mining around Pembrokeshire, former mine-shafts nearby, local subsidence and details of coal seams recorded below a home. A coal search will indicate whether any opencast workings have taken place or are planned in the vicinity. Although this may have less direct ongoing impact on property, the existence of large opencast workings in the vicinity can have an adverse effect while coal is being extracted. Minerals such as copper, lead, silver, gold and ironstone have also been worked in various parts of the country, but on a smaller scale.

There are approximately 57 areas in Pembrokeshire where a mining search is required. These include; Druidston, Loveston, Broad Haven, Roch Gate, Melinau, Tiers Cross and Kilgetty.
