Please help. My Grimsby lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound toorder Grimsby conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCsolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer correct?
You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a home loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Grimsby conveyancing searches.
I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in Grimsby. I I am struggling to find out if they are on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list of lawyers. Could you advise?

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Grimsby
It is unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your preferred Grimsby conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
My a decade ago. He has been wed, widowed and in recent months got married again. He now wants to dispose of the Grimsby property. I suspect that he will just be asked to supply copies of the marriage certificates to the conveyancer however he is anxious it will frustrate the home move. Is it worth updating the Land Registry documents for the property?
It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property providing you have the evidence required to demonstrate how the name change has come about.
The buyer’s solicitor will review the title details and need evidence by way of proof of the name change for example marriage certificates.
