I do hope you can assist me. My Sandhurst solicitor is assuring me that she is duty bound toconduct Sandhurst conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. These Sandhurst checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook.

I am considering applying for a Coventry BS mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Sandhurst with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Coventry BS ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Coventry BS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

A friend informed me that in purchasing a property in Sandhurst there could be various restrictions limiting what one can do in terms of external changes to a property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Sandhurst which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Sandhurst should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

My conveyancer has informed me that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Sandhurst conveyancing?

The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

Intending to buy a flat in Sandhurst. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Sandhurst solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

I have recentlyfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Sandhurst for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sandhurst conveyancing specialists.

I have been recommended by numerous property agents in Sandhurst to choose a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your site rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to make any financial incentive for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Looking forward to sign contracts shortly on a leasehold property in Sandhurst. Conveyancing solicitors inform me that they are sending me a report next week. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?
