Do I have to visit the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Corston so that I can attend their offices if necessary.
Nowadays approved lawyers for mortgage companies undertake their communications through the post, e-mail or over the phone. This enables them to undertake the legal work for your home move regardless of where you live in the country. However you should check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if you prefer.
Please help - my lawyer says that lack of planning permission insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Corston?
The appropriate level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Virgin Money. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
is it true that all Corston solicitor firms on the RBS conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the RBS conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be overseen by the CLC.
We expect to receive a OIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Corston solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Corston solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Corston I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Corston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
Given that I am about to spend over three hundred thousand on a terraced house in Corston I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor regarding thehouse move prior to instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

A conveyancing company acted on my conveyancing in Corston half a dozen years past and was holding my registration certificates but has now closed – how do I retreive these?
Deeds, as such, are no longer appropriate for the majority of homes in Corston are recorded digitally at Land Registry. Should you need to prove ownership or are disposing of or re-mortgaging your property lawyer should obtain up to date copies of the register from the Land Registry in any case.
If you feel there may be other documents or you have any other queries please e-mail your request with details of the transaction and documents you need to firstname.lastname@example.org. The CLC will let you know what information they have and any additional information they may need before they are in a position to identify and send the documents to you. Following an intervention it may take some time for the CLC to access archived files and documents, but your request will be actioned as quickly as possible.
