My wife and I are buying a house in Temple. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to deposit funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Santander as we intend to conduct alterations to our property in Temple. Do we need to select a nearby Temple solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Santander do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander panel.
We were going to get a DIP from RBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Temple solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Temple solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

I have justfound out that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Temple for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out 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 Temple conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Temple is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Temple are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Temple you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Temple may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
