We are planning to acquire a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Porthcawl who is on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Porthcawl ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor has said that some banks will refuse to issue a loan on such a house.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you call us we can check via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Porthcawl. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Porthcawl to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Am I better off to use a Porthcawl conveyancing lawyer based in the vicinity that I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can deal with the legal work but her office is approximately 350kilometers away.
The benefit of a local Porthcawl conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to execute documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were impressed that must outweigh using an unknown Porthcawl conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Porthcawl based.
Partway through the sale of a leasehold flat in Porthcawl. Conveyancing is fine but we are being charged an extortionate amount by the managing agents. So far we have paid £225 for a leasehold management pack and then another £118 for responses to questions raised by the purchaser's solicitor.
Neither you or your conveyancing practitioner will have any say over the level of the charges for this information but the average fee for the information for Porthcawl leasehold property is £380. For Porthcawl conveyancing deals it is customary for the owner to pay for these charges. The landlord or their agents are under no statutory obligation to answer these questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at high prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Regretfully there is no law that mandates capped charges for administrative tasks. There is no set time frame by which they are duty bound to provide answers.
