I do hope you can help me. My Rudry lawyer is advising me that he has toorder Rudry conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a lender your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Rudry conveyancing searches.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Rudry. I I am struggling to find out whether they are on the Bank of Scotland approved list of lawyers. Could you assist?
You should phone the conveyancer and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should call Bank of Scotland who may be able to confirm.
My father-in-law has suggested that I appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Rudry. Do I take his guidance?
No doubt the ideal way to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to get referrals from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the solicitor you're contemplating using.
I want to rent out my leasehold apartment in Rudry. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?
Even though your previous Rudry conveyancing solicitor is no longer around you can review your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the apartment. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must seek consent from your landlord or some other party before subletting. This means you not allowed to sublet without first obtaining permission. The consent must not not be unreasonably withheld. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
