Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a online directory to list law firms on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Lightwater?

We are not aware of any plans on the part of the BSA to promote such a tool.

I can see plenty of here regarding conveyancing in Lightwater but can you isolate your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Lightwater

Do not opt for the lowest Lightwater conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We previously instructed conveyancing lawyers based in Lightwater on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further charge for the legal aspects of the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Clydesdale but by your Lightwater property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Clydesdale panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Lightwater on 21/4/2022, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Principality and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Are Principality entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Principality to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Principality conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Lightwater 5 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to find all the relevant documentation so you may purchase or dispose of your house without any difficulty. If duplicates are not available, your solicitor may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on your premises.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial premises in Lightwater and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to gives security of tenure to business leaseholders, giving them the right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Lightwater is one of the hundreds of locations in which our lawyers have offices

Am I best advised to instruct a Lightwater conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can carry out the conveyancing but they are based 400kilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Lightwater conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute documents, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and on the whole were happy that should trump using an unfamiliar Lightwater conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being local.
