My wife and I have arranged the release of further monies on our home loan from Barclays as we want to carry out renovations to our property in Bridgend. Are we obliged to appoint a bricks and mortar Bridgend solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Barclays do not ordinarily appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Barclays panel.
My wife and I are spending time viewing flats in Bridgend and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a solicitor appointed at this point? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Principality.
It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. As you are seeking a mortgage with Principality, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Principality conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Bridgend. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Bridgend I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Bridgend for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
