I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Mevagissey. I I would like to check whether they are on the Santander conveyancing panel. Could you advise?

The first thing you should do is contact the lawyer and enquire whether they can act for the bank. Otherwise you can call Santander who may be able to help.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Mevagissey. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Mevagissey building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Mevagissey conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Your conveyancer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

My offer was accepted on a house in Mevagissey on 10/8/2022, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My partner and I are downsizing from our property in Mevagissey and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Mevagissey conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Mevagissey. Having lived in Mevagissey for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

I am downsizing from my house. My former conveyancers have shut. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Mevagissey if that makes things easier.

The primary upside of using a high street Mevagissey conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Mevagissey know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were content that should trump using an unknown Mevagissey conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
