My wife and I are buying a property in Binfield. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we have to send money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Nottingham are being difficult. The Binfield solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nottingham are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have instructed a Binfield property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Binfield surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Do I need to be concerned about brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Binfield conveyancing practice?

As with lots of professional services, often referrals from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all suggest conveyancers to choose. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to choose your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that the majority of mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
