I am expecting a OIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Bryn Y Baal solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Bryn Y Baal solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
My wife and I are in the process of viewing apartments in Bryn Y Baal and I am about to put in an offer. Is it advisable to have my property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with Lloyds.
It would be advisable to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are seeking a mortgage with Lloyds, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Bryn Y Baal. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £200. Shortly after, the conveyancer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Nottingham 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 Nottingham 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.
Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the primary reason for stalling in Bryn Y Baal house deals. Is this right?

The deeds to our property are lost. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Bryn Y Baal 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should know exactly where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you may purchase or sell your property without a hitch. If duplicates are not available, your lawyer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities against possible claims on the premises.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial offices in Bryn Y Baal and how can you help?
The 1954 Act affords protection to business tenants, giving them the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

My father-in-law has recommend that I appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Bryn Y Baal. Should I find my own solicitor?
No doubt it’s preferable to select a conveyancing lawyer is to have feedback from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the solicitor that you are considering.
