Is it the case that all West Ealing CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Skipton conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of firms.
Can you point me to a directory of Skipton panel solicitors in West Ealing on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
No. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings open the public online. Where you are in need of a West Ealing solicitor on the Skipton please make the most of our tool.
About to purchase flat in West Ealing. 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 Lloyds 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 West Ealing property lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in West Ealing I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in West Ealing in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

My father completed his conveyancing in West Ealing eight years ago. He has since got married, divorced and is now remarried. He now wants to the sell the West Ealing property. I suspect that he will just be asked to supply copies of the marriage certificates to the lawyer however he is anxious it could frustrate the home move. Should he instruct a conveyancer to update the Land Registry information for the property?
You are not required to bring up to date the register as long as you have the evidence required to demonstrate how the change of name occurred.
The buyer’s conveyancer will check the registered details and request evidence to establish the change of name for example marriage certificates.
