I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Kendal. I I would like to check if they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Could you advise?

The first thing to do is contact your lawyer and ask them whether they can act for the bank. Otherwise you can call Clydesdale who may be able to confirm.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Kendal. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in February. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in February. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement is primarily there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Barclays, do Kendal property lawyers incur a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Kendal solicitor having made sure that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Kendal postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Kendal.

We are purchasing a house and the solicitor has referenced Chancel Repair for which the property could be obligated to pay given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has mentioned insurance. Is this strictly appropriate for conveyancing in Kendal

Unless a prior acquisition of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you can assume that solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Kendal to remain encouraging a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Kendal prior to appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not give a loan on this type of home.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Kendal. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Kendal to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Should I be worried if there is a problem with one of the searches for our conveyancing in Kendal?

Usually, the majority of adverse entries that arise in Kendal conveyancing search responses can be dealt with in advance of completion or title insurance may be put in place. You need to note that even though you may be purchasing the property and may be willing to live with the search results, your building society or bank may not, and when all said and done have the final decision.
