IfI was to acquire a freehold propertyin Bargoed for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Bargoed?

Any savings you would make would be limited to the Bargoed conveyancing searches. A lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with your sellers lawyer, stamp duty return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage but it will not be meaningful.

What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Bargoed?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Bargoed and elsewhere in Caerphilly is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, selling agent and on occasion your bank. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Bargoed is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to protect your best interests and to protect you.

We are witnessing a definite ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone has to be blamed for the process being so protracted. You should always trust your lawyer above all other players in the conveyancing process.

My fiance and I wish to acquire a newbuild flat in Bargoed with a mortgage from Birmingham Midshires.We would like to retain our Bargoed conveyancing lawyer but Birmingham Midshires advised that her practice is not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a Birmingham Midshires panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for a Birmingham Midshires panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Birmingham Midshires use our lawyer?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Birmingham Midshires approved list. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Birmingham Midshires

Is it correct that all Bargoed CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel?

It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to remain on their panels.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Barclays, do Bargoed conveyancers have to pay a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

We expect to receive a DIP from UBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any Bargoed solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Bargoed solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.
