We are selling our flat in Ystalyfera. Does the solicitor have to be required to be on the RBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of 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 requirements fairly frequently in recent years.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Coventry BS, do Ystalyfera conveyancers face a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
Can I be sure that the Ystalyfera conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Ystalyfera getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, TSB are being difficult. The Ystalyfera solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Ystalyfera is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Ystalyfera are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ystalyfera you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ystalyfera may decide 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 residence.
My brother has suggested that I instruct his conveyancing solicitors in Ystalyfera. Should I choose my own property lawyer?
There are no two ways about it the best way to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to seek feedback from friends or relatives who have actually experience in using the solicitor you're contemplating using.
