We are planning to acquire a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in High Peak who is on the Principality solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Principality . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in High Peak.
We are buying a detached bungalow in High Peak. Our aim is to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property include enquiries to see if these works are prohibited?
Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in High Peak can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain works or require the consent of another owner. Many extensions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
When it comes to lenders such as Co-operative, do High Peak property lawyers incur an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

My partner and I are downsizing from our property in High Peak and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in High Peak. Having lived in High Peak for 5 years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
I have recentlyfound out that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in High Peak for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of High Peak conveyancing specialists.
My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we use the agent's chosen solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in High Peak
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred High Peak conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
What is the reason for my conveyancing practitioner requiring a list of items of ID before I can commence with my conveyancing in High Peak?

It is also sometimes a requirement of your lender if you are obtaining a mortgage. Furthermore they have to complete various forms, particularly those relating to SDLT and need to have details such as your full names, NI number and DOB.
