Is it the case that all Canton conveyancing solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We expect to receive a OIP from Skipton this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Canton solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Canton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
Skipton have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a house in Canton has been agreed to, what happens next?
Your estate agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Skipton or the broker and finish off any outstanding forms. Skipton will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Skipton will send the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Canton.
It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Canton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 premises 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.

New build sellers have suggested I use a conveyancing practitioner and I've received an estimate from them. They are nearly two hundred pounds less expensive than my family Canton conveyancing practitioner. What's the catch?
Builders often have panels of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the seller’s paperwork and conveyancing practitioner. As many developers offer an inducement to choose their approved lawyer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a developer won't recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they need an exchange within a tight deadline. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested conveyancer is that they may be reluctant to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the housebuilder. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should stick with your local Canton solicitor.
