Is the fact that my conveyancer in Gwernaffield is not identified on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Gwernaffield conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

My partner and I are selling our home in Gwernaffield and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Gwernaffield. Having lived in Gwernaffield for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Gwernaffield concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Gwernaffield is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Gwernaffield are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Gwernaffield you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Gwernaffield may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
