Can you help? My Arnside conveyancer is advising me that he has toorder Arnside conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyapproved lawyer panel. Is my lawyer correct?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer 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 Arnside conveyancing searches.
Me and my partner are buying a house in Arnside. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On the day of competition we will need to send funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?

My wife and I buying a detached bungalow in Arnside. The intention is to convert the garage to an office at the house.Will legal investigations on the property involve checks to see if these works are prohibited?
Your conveyancer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Arnside will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain alterations or need the permission of a 3rd party. Many works need local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
We had selected conveyancing lawyers locally in Arnside on the Leeds Building Society solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate charge for handling the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Leeds Building Society?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Leeds Building Society but by your Arnside solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.
