Me and my fiancee are purchasing our first property. The lawyer has e-mailedto check if we wish to purchase supplemental conveyancing searches. As novices we are clueless as to what's relevant for conveyancing in Garstang
The extent of Garstang conveyancing searches should be triggered based primarily on the property, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the area and risks, your overall attitude to risk. What is important is that you properly understand what information the searches could supply. You may then decide if you personally think you need that information. Should you be uncertain, ask the conveyancing practitioner to offer guidance.

We were going to get a DIP from Clydesdale 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). Do Clydesdale recommend any Garstang solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Garstang solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, TSB are being a right pain. The Garstang solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Garstang.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Garstang with a mortgage from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. Is this normal?.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden apartment in Garstang. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as usual given that all ground rent and maintenance charges should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
