I am not in a position to travel far from Walderslade. I would like to know the understand why all Walderslade lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?
As unjust as it may seem for mortgage companies to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or solicitor’s viewpoint, the other side of the coin is that mortgage companies are becoming ever more anxious and regard it imperative to shield themselves against illegal activities. As a consequence of this concern banks are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with RBS. Walderslade conveyancing solicitors were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from RBS?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have RBS conducted the valuation? Have you advised RBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the RBS conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
About to purchase maisonette in Walderslade. 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 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 Walderslade conveyancing practitioner is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Walderslade completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my grandfather I am selling a house in Cardiff but reside in Walderslade. My solicitor (based 235 miles awayrequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Walderslade to witness this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are located in Walderslade
When it comes to my conveyancing in Walderslade should I be paying VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee
(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Walderslade conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the conveyancer's time in submitting the funds this way.
