Me and my fiance are purchasing a 3 bedroom apartment in Llandovery with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Llandovery lawyer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the bank panel firms or keep our Llandovery conveyancer as well as pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We feel that this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Llandovery conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Llandovery. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Llandovery involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
