My IFA has requested my Frogmore law firm’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Frogmore office but they have not got back to me yet.
You are best placed to get this information from your Frogmore conveyancer . Most Frogmore law firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
The owners have rather pushy vendors who has suggested a preliminary contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such arrangements promoted for Frogmore conveyancing transactions?
This kind of arrangement is not the norm in Frogmore, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has signed an exclusivity agreement they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they are offered a large enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may secure by reneging on the agreement, however morally unworthy it undoubtedly is.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Frogmore conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel?
Frogmore conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Frogmore I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Frogmore in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
My father has suggested that I appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Frogmore. Should I find my own conveyancer?
