I am acquiring a property mortgage free in Carlisle. I have resided for the last 20 years in Carlisle. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a home loan, then the vast majority of the Carlisle conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to take that path of guidance. One thing to take into account; if you are going to sell the house one day, it will likely be be of importance to your future buyer what the searches contain. On occasion premises with no practical issues can still throw up unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Carlisle should provide you some sensible advice in this regard.

Are the Carlisle conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Clydesdale?

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Carlisle. I I am struggling to find out whether they are on the The Royal Bank of Scotland approved list of lawyers. Can you help?

You should contact your solicitor and ask them whether they can act for the bank. Alternatively please get in touch with The Royal Bank of Scotland who may be able to assist.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Aldermore are being a right pain. The Carlisle solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Aldermore are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore 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've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Carlisle solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance 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 Carlisle 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.

Our sealed bid on a detached house in Carlisle has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Carlisle. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Lloyds going?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Carlisle conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Lloyds approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some buyers will apply for a home loan with Lloyds and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to proceed with searches.
