Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Corwen is not on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should contact the Corwen conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.
We have very assertive vendors who has insisted on a preliminary contract with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements the norm for Corwen conveyancing transactions?
Exclusivity contracts are contracts binding a home seller and purchaser granting the buyer the sole right to purchase the premises for a certain period of time. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract stating that you should receive a contract at a later time being the main conveyancing contract. It is generally used for buyer assurance though in many situations, the proprietor may stand to benefit from such agreements as well. There are many positives and negatives to using them but you should to check with your lawyer but beware that it may result in costing you extra in conveyancing fees. For this these agreements are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Corwen.
I am selling our home in Corwen and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Corwen. We have lived in Corwen for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I am downsizing from my property. My past solicitors have shut. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Corwen if that affects matters.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent advised that the vendor will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Corwen
It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your own,trusted Corwen conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets set by corporate headquarters.
