My home in Whitland is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will the conveyancer need to be required to be on the RBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the RBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.

The property lawyers handling our conveyancing in Whitland has sent papers to review that state the property is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not currently recorded at the Land Registry?
It is unusual for property in Whitland to be unregistered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Plenty of Whitland conveyancing solicitors should be familiar with such matters but if any uncertainty reigns the usual recommendation presently is for the vendor’s solicitor to register the title first and subsequently deal with the sale conveyance - this can though naturally result in a drawn-out conveyancing.
