I am expecting a OIP from Skipton 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 Skipton recommend any Beckermet solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Beckermet solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Beckermet building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Beckermet conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the lender panel, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Beckermet solicitor having checked that they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Aldermore will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Aldermore 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 Beckermet 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.
I have justdiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Beckermet for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

How easy is it to use the search facility to choose a conveyancing solicitor in Beckermet on the approved list for my lender?

We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the agent informed us that the vendor will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's preferred solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Beckermet
We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your own,trusted Beckermet conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
