Me and my partner are purchasing a flat in Gresford. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to send money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I am expecting a AIP from HSBC this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Gresford solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Gresford solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Gresford lawyer having made sure that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
RBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually RBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Gresford postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with RBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Gresford.
I am purchasing a house and the solicitor has mentioned Chancel Repair to which the house may be liable because it falls into the area of such a church. He has recommended insurance. Is this really required for conveyancing in Gresford

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Gresford?

As co-executor for the estate of my father I am disposing of a property in Cardiff but reside in Gresford. My lawyer (based 235 miles awayrequires that I execute a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Gresford who can attest this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you should not need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Gresford based
