Q.

Santander is our lender - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Prior to recent changes, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For property purchasers, this can result in significantly higher legal costs. Homeward Legal will act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Do I need to employ a property lawyer suggested by our estate agent in Llanarmon Yn Ial?

A.

Many agents in Llanarmon Yn Ial have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients to them, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

Commonly, there is no strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
