Please help - my lawyer says that chancel insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Cheslyn Hay?
The right level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
How can we know in advance if a Cheslyn Hay conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Cheslyn Hay seeking 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 advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Cheslyn Hay conveyancing practitioner on the Yorkshire BS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so

Our conveyancer in Cheslyn Hay is asking me for identification documents stating that this is part of his retainer as a solicitor on the bank Conveyancing panel. Is this right?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the bank. This is not unique to conveyancing in Cheslyn Hay
