I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Ystradgynlais. Will the conveyancer order the energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to coordinate?
After the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was kept a mandatory component of selling a property. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned before the property is advertised. This is not something that solicitors normally arrange. If you are using a Ystradgynlais conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable Ystradgynlais accredited person
I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Ystradgynlais. My financial adviser suggested a property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £175. Soon after, the lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
Intending to buy a maisonette in Ystradgynlais. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Ystradgynlais solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

Are there frequently found deficiencies that you encounter in leases for Ystradgynlais properties?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Ystradgynlais. All leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.
A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Lloyds TSB Bank, Chelsea Building Society, and TSB all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
