My wife and I have organised the release of further monies on our mortgage from Leeds Building Society as we wish to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Kidwelly. Are we obliged to choose a nearby Kidwelly solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Leeds Building Society would not normally appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Leeds Building Society list.
Will our lawyer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Kidwelly.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Kidwelly. There are those who purchase a house in Kidwelly, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Kidwelly. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading answer. The purchaser’s lawyers will also carry out an environmental search. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be initiated.

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.
