In the event thatI was to purchase a straightforward homein Windermere mortgage fee and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Windermere?
The only saving you would achieve is the Windermere conveyancing searches. The lawyer is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with your vendors lawyer, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it won't be significant.
What happens if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Yorkshire BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Windermere?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
My wife and I are buying a property in Windermere. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we have to send our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

We are getting the release of further funds on our home loan from Leeds Building Society as we intend to carry out improvements to our house in Windermere. Do we need to appoint a high street Windermere solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Leeds Building Society would not normally require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Leeds Building Society panel.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Windermere off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
I have recentlyfound out that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Windermere for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make 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 Windermere conveyancing specialists.
