We had selected conveyancing lawyers with offices in Roath Park on the Skipton solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate charge for handling the Skipton mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Skipton?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer can charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Skipton but by your Roath Park conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Skipton panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
We expect to receive a OIP from Kent Reliance this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Kent Reliance recommend any Roath Park solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Roath Park solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.
About to purchase apartment in Roath Park. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Roath Park property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Roath Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Roath Park approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Roath Park tend to acquire 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 used to new build conveyancing in Roath Park or who has acted in the same development.
As co-executor for the will of my uncle I am selling a house in Monmouth but reside in Roath Park. My solicitor (approximately 300 miles awayhas requested that I sign a stat dec prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Roath Park who can attest this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Roath Park based
My work colleague mentioned that when selecting a conveyancing lawyer they need approved by your lender. I am new to the process but I have an AIP via Nat West Bank and I already have a local conveyancing lawyer in Roath Park on standby. Can Halifax insist on an approved conveyancer to be used? Does a directory of approved conveyancers even exist so I can appoint a conveyancing solicitor in Roath Park?
You should choose a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. Simply telephone your preferred Roath Park conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not approved you have a couple of alternatives available to you here:
- Carry on with your chosen Roath Park lawyer but Halifax will need to retain a lawyer from their approved panel. The net result is additional fees and likely frustration.
- Choose a fresh conveyancer to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to apply to join the lender panel.
