We are buying a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Axminster who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Clydesdale . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Axminster.
If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Axminster what would it be?
It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Axminster conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. 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 know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from TSB as we wish to carry out renovations to our home in Axminster. Are we obliged to choose a local Axminster solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
TSB do not ordinarily instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers 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 TSB panel.
We expect to receive a AIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Yorkshire BS recommend any Axminster solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Axminster solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Axminster I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Axminster for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
