I am considering applying for a Aldermore mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Whitland with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, but Aldermore would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Whitland. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission an EPC or it is for the owner to see to?
Following the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was kept a mandatory element of moving house. An energy assessment should be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. This is not something that solicitors normally organise. Where you are instructing a Whitland conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable Whitland providers

I have instructed a Whitland conveyancer having made sure that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Whitland surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Whitland is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Whitland are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whitland you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whitland may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
