As I am unsure how the conveyancing bit works what is the most important number one tip you can give me concerning purchase conveyancing in Clynderwen?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Clynderwen and elsewhere in Carmarthenshire is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and sometimes your lender. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Clynderwen is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the legal process whose role it is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.
There is a definite increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process being so protracted. You must always trust your lawyer ahead of the other players when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
I am refinancing my apartment in Clynderwen, does my lawyer need to be on the Skipton Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel, but Skipton would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I just acquired a house at auction in Clynderwen. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?
Given that you are now to in every practical sense signed on the dotted line you should choose a conveyancing solicitor soon as you are facing a tight a fixed date to complete the deal. Every auction property will have a bespoke auction pack. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold premises the auction pack should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You need to hand this to the conveyancer working for you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete on the date specified in the contract.
When it comes to lenders such as TSB, do Clynderwen solicitors face a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
My wife and I are spending time looking at houses in Clynderwen and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a conveyancer appointed at this point? I am planning to take a mortgage with Kent Reliance.
It would be wise to commence 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 forward their details on to the EA. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Kent Reliance, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Clynderwen?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Clynderwen is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Clynderwen are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Clynderwen you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Clynderwen may ascertain 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 property.
