Please help. My Waddon conveyancer is assuring me that he has toorder Waddon conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westconveyancing panel. Do I not have a choice here?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Waddon conveyancing searches.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Waddon and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Waddon. We have lived in Waddon for many years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
