As a FTB what is the most important piece of guidance you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Deanshanger?
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Deanshanger and elsewhere in Northamptonshire is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the transaction. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Deanshanger should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.
Every so often a potential adversary may attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is wrong. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is against your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
I am being told by my lawyer that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Deanshanger?

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Deanshanger off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with HSBC. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Deanshanger is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Myself and my wife have just had an offer agreed on a property and had an appointment on Wednesday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They advised me that when it comes to choosing a conveyancer that unless they are on their approved list of solicitors then we will incur an additional fee of £250+. This is because they will then have to appoint a solicitor to act on their behalf in addition to the one we appoint on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their fees. I have asked the Post Office to send me with a list so I can request quotes only from their approved conveyancers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
You should ask the Post Office what their panel criteria is for a solicitor.Then ask the lawyer of your choice whether they meet the criteria and have they acted on loans for the Post Office in the past. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with the Post Office. Alternatively please make use of our search tool and we may be able to identify a conveyancing practitioner in Deanshanger on the panel for the Post Office.
