I am not in a position to travel far from Dyserth. Can you please spell out why all Dyserth conveyancers are not on all bank panels?
Mortgage Companies tend to restrict either the nature or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Frequent examples of such restriction(s) being that the practice must have at least two partners. As well as restricting the structure of firm, some banks made a decision to reduce the number of organisations they use to act for them. It is worth noting that lenders have no accountability for the standard of conveyancing provided by any Dyserth conveyancing practitioner on their approved list. Property fraud was the primary trigger for the rationalisation of solicitor panels from 2008 notwithstanding that there are opposing assessments concerning whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Data from HMLR exposes that thousands of conveyancing organisations only transact one or two conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have any entitlement to remain on a conveyancing panel when it is evident that conveyancing is not their speciality?

I am purchasing a property in Dyserth. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Kent Reliance be concerned?
As your lender is Kent Reliance your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Kent Reliance. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Kent Reliance where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Dyserth.

I'm buying a new build house in Dyserth with a loan from TSB. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
