I just bought a house at auction in Dolwyddelan. Conveyancing is required. What are my next steps?
Having legally bound yourself to purchase you will need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of priority as you will have a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the deal. All auction property will have an associated legal set of papers. This will include evidence of title and search results. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the legal papers may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork relating to leasehold premises. You need to hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that your finances are organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
Is it the case that all Dolwyddelan conveyancing solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority.

There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays conducted the valuation? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

How does conveyancing in Dolwyddelan differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Dolwyddelan contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Dolwyddelan tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dolwyddelan or who has acted in the same development.
