Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list firms on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Browns Green?

There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Browns Green but how do I know who I should use?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Browns Green conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying 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 know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.
About to purchase house in Browns Green. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Browns Green solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel.
I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Browns Green agreed to, the vendors do however have an associated purchase. The vendors have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Browns Green. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Skipton going?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Browns Green conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your property lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Regarding the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Skipton and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Browns Green.
What can a local search tell me about the property I am purchasing in Browns Green?

The search will reveal information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 topic headings.
five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Browns Green completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
