Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Atherton who acted for me two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Aldermore. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper internet firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. Where you are content to invest time contrasting prices you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds. On the other hand, assuming were content with the legal work the firm provided you couldlive to regret choosing an a cheaper conveyancer. Remember to enquire that the conveyancer can also act for Aldermore.

My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Principality as we intend to carry out renovations to our house in Atherton. Are we obliged to choose a bricks and mortar Atherton solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Principality would not normally require firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Principality conveyancing panel.
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Atherton building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Atherton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Your property lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Atherton on 20/12/2018, valuation was booked 2 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Are Coventry BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
