Having spent time reviewing mumsnet.com for a high-quality solicitor in Bargoed, many comment that I must instruct a CQS accredited lawyer. Can you explain what CQS is?

I am assisting my sister sell her flat in Bargoed. Will the solicitor order the energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?

Following the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s became a required component of selling a house. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned before the property is marketed. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Bargoed conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with long established local assessors

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Bargoed. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Bargoed?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Bargoed. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £200. A few days later, the solicitor contacted me to say that they were not on the RBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the RBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Bargoed 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you can buy or dispose of your house without a hitch. Where copies can’t be found, your solicitor can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on your property.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Bargoed is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bargoed are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bargoed you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bargoed may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
