My brother and I have lately purchased a house in Port Talbot. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Port Talbot?

The question is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Port Talbot. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a form known as a SPIF. If the information turns out to be incorrect, then you may have a claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Port Talbot.

We wanted to use a property lawyer in Port Talbot for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders Lloyds TSB Bank won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Pre- 2008 most lenders had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Port Talbot conveyancing firms would have been on most lender panels. The FSA in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders are increasingly seeing more information from law firms relating to their operations and their employees as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of transactions. Many Port Talbot conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Port Talbot is amongst the numerous areas where the lawyers we list are members of the panel for Lloyds TSB Bank.

We are purchasing a property and the conveyancer has identified Chancel Repair to which the house could be liable given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has recommended insurance. Is this really warranted for conveyancing in Port Talbot

Unless a previous purchase of the premises took place post 12 October 2013 you could expect conveyancing practitioners carrying out conveyancing in Port Talbot to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

I used Action Conveyancing several years ago for my conveyancing in Port Talbot. Now, I need my documents however the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

You should call the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Port Talbot of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously retained, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the property agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we appoint their chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Port Talbot

It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Port Talbot conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
