I am purchasing residence in Caerphilly. My Solicitor is not listed on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Am I still permitted to use my Caerphilly conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank approved list?
You will need to use a solicitor to complete the legal work required if you take out a mortgage to buy your home. The solicitor will conduct all the relevant due diligence on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in order. One can appoint a Caerphilly property lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the lender approved list additional fees will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not historically sought membership they should take the chance to apply.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Caerphilly. I have a mortgage offer with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in Caerphilly has been accepted, now what?
Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s panel). Call up Clydesdale or the financial adviser and finalise any outstanding paperwork. Clydesdale will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Clydesdale will send the offer to you and your lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Caerphilly.
