Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from St Fagans. What is the rationale as to why all St Fagans lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It led to lenders pruning less reputable firms from their panel of approved conveyancers .

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in St Fagans and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in St Fagans you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we work with offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in St Fagans)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
