I am considering applying for a HSBC mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Aberdare with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for HSBC ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but HSBC will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
Do I need to pay for insurance to protect me from financial exposure to chancel repairs when purchasing a house in Aberdare?
Unless a previous acquisition of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Aberdare to continue to propose a a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Aberdare , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Aberdare conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Aberdare registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any other parties. As of today approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the buyer is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not usually top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a great figure which is making it more attractive. I have since been informed that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are particular concerns buying a leasehold house in Aberdare. Conveyancing lawyers have are soon to be instructed. Will they explain the issues?
The majority of houses in Aberdare are freehold and not leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area can help the conveyancing process. It is clear that you are buying in Aberdare in which case you should be looking for a Aberdare conveyancing solicitor and check that they are used to advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the landlord’spermission to conduct alterations. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the house is part of an estate. Your solicitor should advise you fully on all the issues.
