Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Llanelli. Please explain the reason why all Llanelli solicitors are not on all bank panels?
Banks normally impose restrictions on either the type or volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that the firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the structure of firm, some banks decided to limit the number of conveyancers they use to act for them. It is worth noting that mortgage companies have no responsibility for the standard of conveyancing supplied by any Llanelli solicitor on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels in the last decade notwithstanding that there are conflicting points of view concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from HM Land Registry indicates that thousands of law practices only transact one or two conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel cuts question why law firms deserve claim to be on a bank panel when it is evident that conveyancing is not their primary expertise?

How does conveyancing in Llanelli differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Llanelli contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Llanelli usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Llanelli or who has acted in the same development.
