My wife and I are about to exchange on the purchase of a house in Chatteris but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller of three thousand pounds in the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Should they have been notified?
The solicitor that is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is obliged to inform Kent Reliance of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to notify the price change to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Chatteris.
My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Chatteris. I I would like to check if they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
The first thing you should do is phone your lawyer and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should call Barclays who may be able to help.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as UBS, do Chatteris lawyers have to pay an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any lender fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
Can I be sure that the Chatteris conveyancing solicitor on the HSBC panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Chatteris getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.
Planning on purchasing a house in Chatteris. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Chatteris conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.

We have instructed a Chatteris conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (first time buyers) and have spotted in the terms and conditions that they are not overseen by the FCA. Should I be worried or is that the norm with lawyer?
We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancer don't lend money. They will be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who have strict stipulations regulating amounts held in their bank.
