Please help. My Whiston solicitor is assuring me that she is duty bound toapply for Whiston conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCsolicitor panel. These Whiston searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Whiston conveyancing searches.

Are the Whiston conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Bank of Ireland?

Whiston conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Bank of Ireland directly.

My fiance and I intend to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment in Whiston with a homeloan from Yorkshire Building Society.We would like to retain our Whiston conveyancing practitioner but Yorkshire Building Society advised that his firm is not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Yorkshire Building Society panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Yorkshire Building Society use our lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage issued to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Yorkshire Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Whiston is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Whiston are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whiston you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whiston may ascertain 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.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we use the agent's preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Whiston

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your own,trusted Whiston conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by corporate headquarters.
