Can you help? My Acocks Green conveyancer is assuring me that he has toorder Acocks Green conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have a choice here?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your property lawyer 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 lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Acocks Green conveyancing searches.

We are aiming to move home in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Acocks Green. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across your site.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from your property agent but this can only happen once the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you should tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal company but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Acocks Green or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Acocks Green.

Is it the case that all Acocks Green conveyancing solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be governed by the CLC.

I am expecting a OIP from Santander this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Santander recommend any Acocks Green solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Acocks Green solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Santander conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Santander through the process.

I am buying my first flat in Acocks Green with a mortgage from Barclays . The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it would put at risk my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Acocks Green ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Acocks Green. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Acocks Green to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

Should I appoint a Acocks Green conveyancing lawyer based in the area that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can execute the legal work but her office is a couple of hundredmiles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Acocks Green conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were content that must trump using an unfamiliar Acocks Green conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.
