The Bexleyheath conveyancing firm handling our Bexleyheath conveyancing has spotted a difference between the information in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer says that he needs to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s course or action correct?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
How up to date is your search tool for Bexleyheath conveyancing solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel? Do Clydesdale send you an updated list?
Bexleyheath conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.
We are purchasing a property in Bexleyheath. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On the day of competition we have to put our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Coventry BS are being a right pain. The Bexleyheath solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Co-operative have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a house in Bexleyheath has been accepted, what are the next steps?
The estate agent will wish to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (be sure the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Co-operative or your financial adviser and finalise any appropriate paperwork. Co-operative will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or seller to schedule a slot for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week to receive the mortgage offer. Co-operative will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Bexleyheath.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a Bexleyheath conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?
If you are instructing a solicitor for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Bexleyheath conveyancing firm) it is most important that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non Bexleyheath conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be of use:
What volume of lease extensions have they carried out in Bexleyheath in the last 12 months?
