I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Roath Park. I have been residing for the last 20 years in Roath Park. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then almost all of the Roath Park conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. Do consider; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it could be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches determine. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still throw up unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Roath Park will provide you some practical guidance here.
I am remortgaging my apartment in Roath Park, does my lawyer need to be on the Barclays Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel, but Barclays would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
My wife and I are buying a property in Roath Park. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we will need to put money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Roath Park. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Roath Park?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
My solicitor has informed me that lack of planning permission insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Roath Park conveyancing?
The appropriate level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
