In the event thatI were to acquire a straightforward housein Halkyn for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Halkyn?
The only reduction in fees you would achieve is the Halkyn conveyancing searches. A conveyancing practitioner is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with your sellers solicitor, stamp duty return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage however it will not be meaningful.
It is is a decade since I purchased my home in Halkyn. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Halkyn involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
My fiance and I are buying a newbuild apartment in Halkyn with a residential mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.We have a Halkyn conveyancing solicitor but Norwich and Peterborough Building Society advised that she’s not on their approved list of firms. It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and fork out for a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Norwich and Peterborough Building Society use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers will be on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society
My colleague advised me that where I am buying in Halkyn I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Halkyn conveyancing searches.

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Halkyn Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Halkyn.

As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a property in Newport but live in Halkyn. My conveyancer (based 200 kilometers awayrequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Halkyn to witness and place their company stamp on the document?
Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are located in Halkyn
