What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Crowle
Two types of professional can carry out conveyancing in Crowle namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors.

They are both obliged to perform Crowle conveyancing to the same quality and guidelines so you can be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly carried out and that the requirements and steps should be suitably followed.
My husband and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Santander as we intend to conduct a loft conversion to our property in Crowle. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Crowle solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Santander do not ordinarily require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander panel.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Crowle on 27/8/2020, valuation was booked 4 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Nationwide and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Are Nationwide entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
How does conveyancing in Crowle differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Crowle contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Crowle usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Crowle or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Crowle in advance of retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some banks tend refuse to give a loan on this type of house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Crowle. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Crowle to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
I have been advised by a number of selling agents in Crowle to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your services rather than a competitor’s?
We refuse to give any financial incentive for directing people to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
