We are buying a newly converted apartment in Boscastle with a homeloan from Barnsley Building Society.We would like to retain our Boscastle conveyancing practitioner but Barnsley Building Society says she’s not on their approved list of member firms. We have to appoint a Barnsley Building Society panel lawyer or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Barnsley Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Barnsley Building Society use our lawyer?
No, not really. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers must be on the Barnsley Building Society approved list. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barnsley Building Society
What does a local search tell me about the house my wife and I buying in Boscastle?
Boscastle conveyancing often commences with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations such as Searchflow The local search plays an important role in many a Boscastle conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your property.

I am buying a new build flat in Boscastle. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Boscastle
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply a car parking plan. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

We have detailed some Boscastle conveyancing firms at the bottom of this page and you can ring them to check whether they are on the Godiva Mortgages Ltd member panel
Should I instruct a Boscastle conveyancing practitioner based in the location that I am buying? An old friend can perform the legal work however they are based approximately 350miles away.
The primary upside of using a high street Boscastle conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign documents, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Boscastle know how is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were impressed that must outweigh using an unknown Boscastle conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
My conveyancing in Boscastle is set to complete on Friday, yet the couple I am purchasing from has asked to move out the next day at noon. Do I agree to this?
It is not possible to complete on a Saturday due to the bank systems are not operating.
