I am thinking of remortgaging my property in Burwash, does my lawyer need to be on the Clydesdale Solicitor panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, but Clydesdale would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

We are getting the release of further funds on our home loan from TSB as we intend to conduct improvements to our house in Burwash. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Burwash solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP.

Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s approved list). Contact Santander or your financial adviser and complete any relevant paperwork. Santander will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or seller to book a slot for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Santander will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Burwash.

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Burwash. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Burwash ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Burwash.
