Can you help? My Colindale solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toorder Colindale conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Nat Westconveyancing panel. These Colindale searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a mortgage with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Colindale conveyancing searches.

Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Colindale.
