After shopping around on the internet I have found a Allendale lawyer having checked that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Allendale surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Allendale is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Allendale are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Allendale you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Allendale may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Am I right to be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Allendale conveyancing company?

As with many professional services, often input from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. But there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may put forward solicitors to instruct. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there might be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of lenders operate an approved list of law firms you have to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
