Me and my partner are acquiring our first property. Our lawyer has messagedto enquire if we wish to take out extra conveyancing searches. As novices we have no idea as to what's appropriate for conveyancing in Charlbury

My wife and I have arranged the release of further monies on our home loan from RBS as we wish to carry out improvements to our home in Charlbury. Are we obliged to choose a high street Charlbury solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

RBS don't usually appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the RBS conveyancing panel.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Charlbury. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Yorkshire BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As your lender is Yorkshire BS your lawyer must follow the formal instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Charlbury.

About to purchase flat in Charlbury. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Charlbury conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

I have justdiscovered that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Charlbury for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Charlbury is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Charlbury are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Charlbury you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Charlbury may determine 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 property.

Charges for conveyancing in Charlbury vary, so it's sensible to request a minimum of three estimates from different solicitors. Dont forget to clarify what costs in the quote includes.
