My mortgage broker requires my Cinderford law firm’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. How do I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Cinderford branch but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Cinderford conveyancing practitioner . They retain a central record lender panel numbers.

We expect to receive a OIP from Barclays this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Cinderford solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Cinderford. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Cinderford for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Cinderford conveyancing specialists.
I am buying a new build house in Cinderford with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been advised by a few estate agents in Cinderford to choose a solicitor on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your site rather than a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to visit the offices of the bank conveyancing panel solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Cinderford as it will be easier to pop in to their offices if necessary.
