Can you help? My Highbury solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toconduct Highbury conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Is my lawyer correct?

You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a home loan with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Highbury conveyancing searches.

My wife and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Yorkshire BS as we wish to conduct improvements to our home in Highbury. Do we need to choose a nearby Highbury solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Yorkshire BS would not normally appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Yorkshire BS panel.

We expect to receive a AIP from Clydesdale this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Clydesdale recommend any Highbury solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Highbury solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.

The mortgage over my property is with Leeds Building Society for my property in Highbury. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Leeds Building Society?

You must advise Leeds Building Society in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Leeds Building Society will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Leeds Building Society directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel lawyer.

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
