Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Saltash solicitor - who is on the Principality conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Saltash surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

With lots of history conveyancing in Saltash the following are instances of what can arise and therefore impact future mortgageability: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Charges, Overdue Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

How does conveyancing in Saltash differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Saltash come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Saltash typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Saltash or who has acted in the same development.

How do I use your search tool to locate a conveyancing lawyer in Saltash on the approved list for my bank?

We can't see why they should be. Most lawyer don't lend money. You should check that they are regulated by the SRA, who set strict conditions regulating amounts held by them.
