I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Do I opt for a web based conveyancer rather than a local Tredegar conveyancing lawyer?
In the main conveyancing practitioners in your location will enjoy strong alliances with your local authority, which can help with the Tredegar conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will require on your transaction. It also helps if they have good relationships with the Land Registry covering your area Tredegar, other lawyers in the location and Tredegar selling agents.
I am in a contract race with another buyer for a property in Tredegar. What can I do to expedite matters?
In a situation where the seller is applying a tight deadline for your conveyancing it is advisable to make sure that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will have local connections and knowledge. It is even conceivable that they would have transacted otherhomes in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Tredegar conveyancing solicitor. In addition, be sure that the conveyancing firm is on the member panel. It is understood that 18% of Tredegar conveyancing transactions are frustrated or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s solicitor was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. This can often result in the transaction being held up by as much as 21 days. It is understood that this issue affects approximately one hundred thousand home moves every year. Most Tredegar conveyancing firms can not act for certain banks so do check as early as possible.

Is it the case that all Tredegar conveyancing solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be overseen by the CLC.
My offer on a semi in Tredegar has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Tredegar. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nationwide going?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Tredegar conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to proceed with searches.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Tredegar I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Tredegar in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
