We are buying a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Castleford who is on the Santander approved panel. Can you recommend a local firm?

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the process as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Castleford. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Castleford?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Castleford. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.
Can you help - my lawyer says that chancel insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Castleford?
The right level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by TSB. Is it usual for TSB to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Castleford is approved on their conveyancing panel? TSB have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for TSB to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the TSB conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for obstruction in Castleford conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Castleford.
I have todayfound out that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Castleford for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Castleford conveyancing specialists.
