My IFA has requested my Chaddesley Corbett law firm’s panel member for the Santander conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have e-mailed my local Chaddesley Corbett office but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Chaddesley Corbett conveyancer . Most Chaddesley Corbett conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
It is a dozen years since I purchased my property in Chaddesley Corbett. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I am unable to find the title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be retained by your lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Chaddesley Corbett relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Skipton Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Chaddesley Corbett?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
I am assisting my sister sell her flat in Chaddesley Corbett. Does the solicitor commission an energy performance certificate or do I organise this?
After the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a compulsory component of moving property. An EPC should be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Chaddesley Corbett conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange energy assessments due to their contacts with reputable Chaddesley Corbett assessors
Can I be sure that the Chaddesley Corbett conveyancing solicitor on the Nottingham panel is any good?

Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Co-operative are being a right pain. The Chaddesley Corbett solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative 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.
