Some advice if I may. My Chulmleigh solicitor is advising me that he is legally obliged toorder Chulmleigh conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. These Chulmleigh searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Chulmleigh conveyancing searches.
Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to to identify solicitors on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Chulmleigh?
We are not aware of any plans on the part of the BSA to promote such a tool.

My partner has urged me to instruct his lawyers for conveyancing in Chulmleigh. Should I use them?

We have instructed a Chulmleigh conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (novice purchasers) and have noticed in the terms and conditions that they are not regulated by the FCA. Should I be worried or is that usually the case with solicitor?
We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They should be regulated by the SRA, who dictate strict stipulations in relation to monies deposited in their bank.
