Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Elmers End who acted for me two years ago asking for a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of similar values with a loan from Virgin Money. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper internet conveyancer?

The costs illustration is fractionally on the steep side. Where you are happy to spend time contrasting costs you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds. That being said, providing that you were pleased with the assistance the firm gave you couldcome to regret choosing an a cheaper lawyer. Don't forget to be sure that the firm can act for Virgin Money.

We are hoping to buy a newbuild flat in Elmers End with a residential mortgage from HSBC Bank.We like our Elmers End conveyancing practitioner but HSBC Bank says he's not on their approved list of firms. It seems we have no choice but to instruct a HSBC Bank panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the HSBC Bank solicitor panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for HSBC Bank

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
