My financial adviser has requested my Mayfield solicitor’s panel reference for the Santander conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have e-mailed my local Mayfield branch but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Mayfield solicitor . Most Mayfield law practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Mayfield. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Is this a major issue?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they could still be with the lawyers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Mayfield involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
We are purchasing a property and the lawyer has mentioned Chancel Repair to which the property could be obligated to pay as it falls into the area of such a church. He has suggested insurance. Is this really required for conveyancing in Mayfield
Unless a prior purchase of the premises took place after 12 October 2013 you can assume that solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Mayfield to continue to advocate a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the bank conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the bank approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
