I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must leave my rented flat in Caerphilly by 15/12/2021. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. How realistic is it to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to serve notice for your letting unless your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not already done so, speak to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the other side, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will look towards
The Caerphilly conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my purchase in Caerphilly have suddenly closed. I chose them because I needed a firm on the Principality conveyancing panel and my family Caerphilly lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Principality conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Caerphilly with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may impact my mortgage with HSBC Bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I yesterday become aware that one of the partners of the solicitors acting on the purchase conveyancing in Caerphilly is an aunty of the owners that we are buying from. Is this allowed?
On the basis that there is no conflict of interest this is allowable. If you are needing a home loan then the mortgage company may have a say as many lenders have specific instructions concerning this. For example for Virgin as of 16/10/2021, the requirements read as follows :
