I can't travel far from Cherry Burton. I would like to know the understand why all Cherry Burton conveyancing practitioners are not on all bank panels?
As unjust as it may seem for banks to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or lawyer’s point of view, the the contrary view is that lenders are increasingly anxious and regard it vital to protect them against illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.

We are purchasing a end of terrace house in Cherry Burton. Our aim is to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve investigations to see if these alterations are permitted?
Your property lawyer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Cherry Burton will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain works or need the consent of a 3rd party. Certain works call for local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being problematic. The Cherry Burton solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland 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.

Nationwide will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nationwide 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. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Cherry Burton postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Cherry Burton.
