Me and my partner are purchasing a property in Mynydd Isa. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we have to send funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

Is it correct that all Mynydd Isa CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel?
A selection of lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Mynydd Isa. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £175. A few days later, the conveyancing practitioner called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the RBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the RBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I have a renovated Edwardian house in Mynydd Isa. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Skipton Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Skipton Building Society to clarify?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Mynydd Isa and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
I'm buying my first flat in Mynydd Isa benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it may impact my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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 am attracted to a couple of apartments in Mynydd Isa which have about forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Mynydd Isa. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. Sometimes it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
