After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Putney Vale. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £150. A couple of days later, the solicitor contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Virgin Money panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Putney Vale and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Putney Vale conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Putney Vale. Having lived in Putney Vale for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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 ailment)

Am in the process of buying my first house in Putney Vale. Conveyancing practitioner already instructed. The broker advised that a survey is not needed as the property is just 17 years old.
You would be best advised to undertake a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence is more than 10 years old the property will be without a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may suffice. The report should highlight any apparent problems and suggest further investigation if relevant. If there are any indications of problems seek a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
