If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Mevagissey what would it be?
Do not opt for the lowest Mevagissey conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. 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.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Principality are being problematic. The Mevagissey solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Principality are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
What will a local search tell me concerning the house I am purchasing in Mevagissey?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Mevagissey is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Mevagissey are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Mevagissey you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Mevagissey may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

My friend mentioned that when selecting a conveyancing firm they need approved by your lender. I am a FTB but I have an AIP from Birmingham Midhshires and I already have a high street conveyancing lawyer in Mevagissey on standby. Will Halifax need an approved conveyancer to be selected? If so, where do I find that list for my conveyancing in Mevagissey?
You need to instruct a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. Just telephone your chosen Mevagissey conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not approved you have a couple of choices open to you here:
- Carry on with your preferred Mevagissey conveyancer but Halifax will need to retain a conveyancing practitioner from their approved panel. The net result is additional fees together with likely interruption.
- Choose a new conveyancer to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
- Convince your property lawyer to do everything within their powers to get listed on the Halifax panel of solicitors.
