I am considering mortgaging my home in Corfe Castle, does my lawyer need to be on the Skipton Solicitor panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Skipton will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
We are planning to move house in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Corfe Castle. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the selling agent however this should only occur after the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Corfe Castle or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Corfe Castle.
Is it the case that all Corfe Castle solicitor practices on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We had appointed solicitors with offices in Corfe Castle on the Nottingham solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate amount for handling the Nottingham mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Nottingham?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Nottingham but by your Corfe Castle property lawyer. Some firms on the Nottingham panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Corfe Castle?

An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Corfe Castle is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Corfe Castle are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Corfe Castle you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Corfe Castle may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
