Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Bryncoch. Is there a reason why all Bryncoch solicitors are not on all bank panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The elimination of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in mortgage companies pruning less reputable firms off their panel of approved conveyancers .

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Bryncoch and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience.

My house in Bryncoch is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Will the solicitor have to be required to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently currently.
I have recentlybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Bryncoch for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest way to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bryncoch conveyancing specialists.
Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Bryncoch?
Conveyancing - in Bryncoch or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the problems before you complete your move.
