We are buying a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in St Neots who is on the Co-operative solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Co-operative . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in St Neots.
Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list firms on the Darlington Building Society conveyancing panel for example in St Neots?
We have not been informed any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.
Please help - my lawyer says that missing deeds insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in St Neots?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
Can you point me to a directory of Co-operative panel conveyancers in St Neots on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are looking for a St Neots property lawyer on the Co-operative please use our facility.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in St Neots. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their solicitor. I paid an on account payment of £225. A couple of days later, the conveyancing practitioner called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Barclays 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 Barclays 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.
Have purchased a a terraced house in St Neots , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My St Neots conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my name is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in St Neots registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am looking into buying my first house which is in St Neots and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about St Neots. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the St Neots area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Am in the process of buying my first home in St Neots. Conveyancing solicitor has been chosen. The financial consultant suggested that a survey is not necessary as the house was only constructed 16 yrs ago.
You would be best advised to take a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property is over ten years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be sufficient. The report should highlight any apparent problems and suggest further investigation if relevant. Where there are any indications of material issues get a comprehensive structural survey.
