Please help. My Acle lawyer is advising me that he is legally obliged toconduct Acle conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyconveyancing panel. These Acle checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your solicitor 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 bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Acle conveyancing searches.
Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Acle costs more?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Acle and Norfolk usually warrants more due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes lease investigation, communicating with the landlord concerning serving applicable notices, securing current service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first entered into.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Acle and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Acle lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Acle. We have lived in Acle for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I decided to have a survey done on a house in Acle ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to give a mortgage on such a premises.

Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Acle to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
