This site is not designed to aid those in their quest for the lowest fares for conveyancing solicitors in Poynton. Our aim is to provide cost effective conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest.

Our solicitor has identified a defect with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Poynton. The other side have offered title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our property lawyer says that he must be satisfied that the lender is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?
Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the bank are the client. The appropriate lender provisions must be adhered to.
Is it correct that all Poynton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Yorkshire BS, do Poynton conveyancing practitioners have to pay a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
