I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Halifax. I intend to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Cross Keys. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

I am planning to move property in November. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Cross Keys. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only occur after the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. You can tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Cross Keys or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Cross Keys.
We had chosen conveyancing lawyers with offices in Cross Keys on the Principality solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional sum for handling the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Principality but by your Cross Keys conveyancer. Some firms on the Principality panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I am buying a property in Cross Keys. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Yorkshire BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is Yorkshire BS your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The CML Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Cross Keys.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Cross Keys is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Cross Keys are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cross Keys you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cross Keys 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.
