I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (seven years built) in St Margarets. Almost all the appartments have already been disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in St Margarets?
If you getting a loan, your mortgage company will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then St Margarets conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you may need to find a new lawyer for your conveyancing in St Margarets.
How up to date is your search tool for St Margarets conveyancing solicitors on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? Do Virgin Money send you an updated list?

I am aiming to move house in October. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in St Margarets. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across this website.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent but this can only take place once the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you can inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in St Margarets or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in St Margarets.
Planning on purchasing a maisonette in St Margarets. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Principality 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 St Margarets solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in St Margarets is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
What can a local search inform me concerning the property my wife and I buying in St Margarets?

I am purchasing a new build house in St Margarets with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in St Margarets before retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a mortgage on such a house.
