In the event thatI were to buy a simple residential propertyin Ashington for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Ashington?
Any savings you would achieve will be isolated to the disbursement for searches. The solicitor still got to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with the sellers property lawyer, SDLT submission, register the title etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a charge however it won't be meaningful.
There is lots of information on this site regarding conveyancing in Ashington but what is your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Ashington
Do not opt for the lowest Ashington conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Can you point me to a directory of Clydesdale panel conveyancers in Ashington on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings visible online. Where you are in need of a Ashington solicitor on the Clydesdale please make the most of our tool.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Santander. Is it usual for Santander to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Ashington is approved on their conveyancing panel? Santander have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the mortgage company approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the mortgage company conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the mortgage company solicitor panel.
