I was told yesterday by my mortgage adviser that my Burbage solicitor is not on the lender Solicitor panel. How can I be sure if this is correct?
The first thing you need to do is to contact your Burbage lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Burbage conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.
We are due to complete buying a house in Burbage but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the seller in the sum of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Nottingham are not allowing this. Should they have been approached?
Your conveyancing practitioner being on a Nottingham conveyancing panel is required to inform Nottingham of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Nottingham then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nottingham and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Burbage.

The search result provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Burbage.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Burbage it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately may result in delays to Burbage commercial conveyancing transactions as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not conducted for domestic conveyancing in Burbage.

Taking into account that I am about to spend over three hundred thousand on a terraced house in Burbage I would like to have a conversation with the lawyer about mytransaction ahead of appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer who will be doing your property ownership legalities in Burbage.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Burbage should be the figure that you end up paying.
