Please help. My Nannerch lawyer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Nannerch conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santanderapproved lawyer panel. Is my lawyer correct?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Nannerch conveyancing searches.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would much rather use a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Nannerch?
Do check but the the probability is that allocate you one of their panel lawyers if you want the "fee-free" offer. Contact the bank and determine if they allow a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Nannerch.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Nannerch conveyancing lawyers have been instructed. How long does it take for Co-operative to issue the offer to the lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative conducted the survey? Have you advised Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Yorkshire BS are being a right pain. The Nannerch solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Yorkshire BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS 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.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Virgin Money will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Nannerch.
